Welcome

Thank you for visiting my website of over 6,300 keyword searchable images of wildlife, macro subjects and natural world landscapes. I have been a professional nature photographer for over 25 years and specialize in the western and southwestern United States with additional coverage in Canada, Africa and northern Mexico.
I have extensive subject coverage of a wide range of wildlife species with a sub-specialty in odonates or dragonflies and damselflies. Please visit my About Page for a short list of clients, publication credits and information on purchasing fine art prints of my images.

I have also been involved with a wildlife rescue facility, one of the largest of its kind in the United States, since 1987. My book Sanctuary tells the stories, in words and pictures, of the sanctuary and many of the wild animals that called the sanctuary home.
