I was born and raised in Arizona and love the photographic opportunities it offers. I shot film since the late 70's and bought my first DSLR in 2009. As a nature photographer I'm constantly in awe of the beauty and complexity of God's creation. One of my favorite things to photograph are birds of which there are 10,000 species in the world and that's just one of the animal groups. I thank God for my talent and the ability to do the thing I love, for my beautiful wife and family but most importantly for His amazing grace thru His Son, Jesus Christ. I hope my photo's will encourage you to put down your electronics for awhile and get outside. Visit a National Park (one of the best things our government did) or a State Park, go to the desert, the mountains, look up, look down, listen, smell, experience and unwind.
