Each image tells its own detailed story. The large format brings you closer and makes the story personal.
Sunlight. Season. Clouds. Journey. A moment frozen in time.
Subtle shifts in light can bring drama to a landscape. Capturing wildlife in the shot can create movement and whimsy. The final image reflects the journey. Most of the landscapes in my landscape portfolio were photographed in Southwest Florida. They include spectacular sunsets in Naples, the Everglades in storm season, Naples Pier, various pier and coastal structures, landmarks and sunrises and sunsets photographed all over the State of Florida.
Personality. Plumage. Perspective. The search for the soul of the bird.
Waiting for a bird to reveal their unique personality takes patience and stillness. Photographing birds is a passion of mine. All the birds photographed in this gallery include Blue Herons, Reddish Egrets, Reddish Egret White Morphs, Great Egrets, Snowy Egrets, Tri-Color Herons, Terns, Snowy Plovers, Roseate Spoonbills, Pelicans, and all other Florida Birds.
Wildflower & Orchids Portfolio
Color. Texture. Determination. The peak of the life cycle.
A favorite and reliable location for shooting blooms is the Naples Botanical Garden. The striking colors and beauty burst off the canvas. Most of the photographs were photographed at Naples Botanical Garden and other botanical gardens including the Everglades. The gallery includes Ghost Orchids, Orchids, Water Lilies, Butterflies, and all types of Flora around the State of Florida.
Birds of Prey Portfolio
Intensity. Stealth. Vision. Stalking a predator.
The pursuit of the birds of prey is as challenging as capturing the impossible shot. It takes a deeper focus and patience along with a little luck to get the perfect light and movement. The gallery consists of Bald Eagles, Ospreys, Owls, Burrowing Owls, Hawks and all other Raptors in Southwest Florida.
Exploration. Immersion. Experience. Interacting with the environment.
Whether trekking through the swamps or searching along the shore, being a part of the experience with the animals is challenging and exhilarating. The wildlife portfolio includes Florida Panthers, Alligators, Sea Turtles, Deer, Raccoons, and all other wildlife in Southwest Florida.
