Some might call us insane, but we call ourselves wildlife photographers. There is nothing better in the world than trekking miles into the backcountry carrying an 80-pound pack in order to escape civilization and document animals.
I am an avid outdoorsman before I am a wildlife photographer. If a camera did not exist I would still be spending time observing all the interesting animals on the planet. Even though I am from the South, my favorite season to photograph in is the winter. Camping and snowshoeing deep into the backcountry in temperatures colder than -40F/C sounds like a death wish to some, but to a few it sounds like the experience of a lifetime.
Every time I photograph wildlife my goal is to provide a unique glimpse into an animals’ world. I believe my passion for the outdoors and wildlife, that stems all the way back to memories fishing with my dad, gives me the curiosity to spend so much time viewing wildlife in order to capture a special memory that lasts only a fraction of a second.
As my career progressed, now one of my greatest passions is guiding clients and giving them a glimpse into an animals’ life that they have never witnessed before. Nothing beats seeing one of my clients faces when they finally see an animal that they have had on their bucket list for years, and even in some cases decades.
My current goals as a wildlife photographer are to keep creating unique interaction photos between animals, share what I have learned with my audience through my newly created wildlife photography podcast (PhotoCast), as well as further studying animal behavior, animal biology, and animal tracking.
