About


Recent galleries – Papua New Guinea


I have always been fascinated by the uniqueness, history, and exquisite beauty contained within the world’s diverse cultures. This fascination has driven me to visit 54 countries, so far. My desire to preserve and share the moments, places and people I was encountering on my trips lead me to photography. I quickly found that the camera allowed me to isolate, frame, and focus on the aesthetic qualities of the places I was experiencing. After my photographs started to garner attention in photography competitions, I was able to acquire a contract to shoot for Lonely Planet Images. This has allowed me to earn income from an activity I am passionate about and share my photographs with the world. Although travel photography is only a small part of what I do, it is one of the most rewarding.
