Medium: Photographer

Bio:  I have traveled to Asia, Europe, Central America and North America to photo-document various business projects, but I never fail to take time to photo other things of interest. My photos fall into two categories: beautiful, or interesting. Sometimes, of course, photos fit both categories at the same time.

I live on a small farm south of Houston, Texas. One of the boundaries for the farm is Chocolate Bayou, which feeds directly into Galveston West Bay and then the Gulf of Mexico. In this area, the opportunities for wildlife and nature photography are plentiful; I carry my camera gear with me most of the time. I have also spent time in Washington, Idaho, Oregon, British Columbia, Arizona, California, Wisconsin, and other places too numerous to mention. Again, the photo ops are always there if you are willing to look for them and take the time to shoot the picture. At home on the bayou, flowers and birds are the most plentiful subjects, and there is always something new if you are willing to slow down and look. Snakes, spiders and alligators are among my favorite subjects, along with bees, butterflies, dragonflies and the like. Don’t be surprised to see coyotes, armadillos, or bobcats.
