What does "conservation photography" mean to you?

To bring people back to see our place as part of creation. To develop a thirst to be in natural places so that they will value nature. There has been so much change since I was a child, I am afraid that the starting place for people today is already far removed from the world that nurtured me and my family. If we don't understand ourselves as creatures, we cannot understand ourselves as stewards of the natural world, and what we do to ourselves when we exploit and trash it.

What is your favorite subject matter?

Fields of flowers, waterfalls, forests, red rocks and granite . . . icebergs, snow, and people in their relative size (small)

What camera do you currently use?

Nikon D200


I have been photographing since I was 12 years old. Since I retired I have been able to "dive in" and improve my skills. I enjoyed the Conservation Photography trip to the Eastern Sierras, and hope that I can do more such excursions.
