About Me

I've been a bird photographer since 2006, which is when I read Art Morris' book, The Art of Bird Photography. All I do is photograph birds. I don't photograph weddings, senior portraits...just birds. I've traveled to multiple states to get the most unique and best photos possible for my audience.
