I have a lifelong love of the outdoors. I was fortunate to grow up in the Bay Area at the foot of Mt. Tamalpais and to be able to experience the wilderness through hiking, camping, and backpacking. Outdoor photography allows me to more fully appreciate nature by virtue of a heightened awareness of my environment as I look for images in my surroundings.
I am particularly attracted to geometrically pleasing images in nature that reveal the beauty of natural forms. I have found that we pass by an amazing number of small wonders every day without ever noticing them. Thus, the dandelion on a summer afternoon that one almost never lies on the ground to appreciate.
