My love for wildlife and people has given me the opportunity to document them both in video and stills throughout my life. I've traveled the world and experienced much because of my passion. I'm happy to share my work with you in festivals and print.
I have a varied professional background in photography which spans over 45 years. From glamour and celebrity photography in Hollywood, to shooting wildlife videos in Africa and SE Asia. I now own and operate a photography studio in Vallejo, CA.
