Growing up in the forests of British Columbia, it was easy to develop a deep love and respect for nature. I spent most of my spare time in the woods, or on the beaches, or scuba diving off the coasts of B.C.


It wasn’t until I moved to California, though, that I picked up a camera with the intention of recording wildlife moments—intimate moments portraying wildlife going through daily motions that are so like our own minutia—with the hope of raising awareness and engendering respect for Nature within others.


We are all connected. What we do to our environment, we inevitably do to ourselves.
With this in mind, I believe that a better understanding of the natural world can help us create a better future for all living beings on this planet.


All my photos are taken with the highest regard and respect for the subject matter, and part of the proceeds from each photograph sold will be donated to wildlife preservation and rehabilitation.

 

Recently, a number of my photos were published in the Audubon Society's publication Breeding Birds of Solano County, which can be purchased here.
