“As a nature photographer I feel it is important to learn as much as you can about what you are photographing. To understanding their species, habitat, behavior, characteristic and other useful information to create a better connection between you and them as well as how you photograph.
Beginning in August of 2018, my goal is to explore Florida’s natural and beautiful locations and to share with you information about the variety of species I encounter on a personal and photographic level.”
