Nature Photography Gallery

Growing up on a farm in Northern Minnesota, I was always close to nature. Our back yard was a wooded river. The woods was my playground and our nearest neighbor was a mile away so it was natural for me to grow up as someone who loved the environment and loved nature photography.

I chose photography as my career path, mostly to travel and experience as much of the world as I could. Becoming a newspaper photographer allowed me to explore the Rocky Mountains while I worked at the Greeley Tribune in Colorado. When working at the Naples Daily News in Florida, I fell in love with the Florida Everglades.

Florida Nature Photography

When I left the newspaper business I kept photographing nature and started an art show career with my nature photography. I return to Florida as often as I can  to photograph the amazing Florida Everglades.

I was chosen by Everglades National Park to be an artist in residence. As part of the month-long residency I canoed the Wilderness Waterway. I spent eleven days in a canoe traveling the entire distance of the canoe trail through the Everglades. It was a fantastic 11-day trip traversing the entire western coastline of Everglades National Park, totally immersed in nature for 80 miles.

Florida is and always will be in my blood and I am always looking for ways to return to the Everglades.

Florida Everglades Nature Photography Workshop

With my extensive knowledge of the Florida Everglades, I offer a Florida Everglades Nature Photography Workshop. To photograph the Everglades doesn’t necessarily take total immersion in nature for days at a time. We also visit much easier to explore areas like Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary as well as some off the beaten path locations. You don’t need to get your feet wet to experience the Everglades!
