My Mission & Goal

My Camera and I

I desire to take stunning photographs, capturing sunsets, and landscapes. Explore my site and you’ll find that I focus intently on birds, the places that they habitat, sunsets, and landscapes.

The World Is Waiting

Big Fox Publishing

There’s a whole world out there just waiting to be explored. As a freelance midwest photographer, author, and publisher, I know just how to catch the unique and interesting animals and places that make our world so wonderful. I am able to bring these wonders to life on camera and on paper and I have spent many years photographing nature. Check out what I’ve done, where I’ve been, and what I’ve photographed. You can buy a print or buy a book.
