What is a photographer? Is it simply pointing a camera in the right direction and hoping? Or is photography conveying a sense of time and place those that were not present through your art? Personally, I am betting on the latter.
I am a native Montanan, who has spent a lifetime as an outdoors and wildlife enthusiast. I earned a degree in biology with an emphasis on habitat relations. During my studies, I had the great fortune to research and compose a thesis that explored the effects of slope aspect on communities in southwestern Montana and, more specifically, the ways that Clark’s Nutcrackers use their habitat. I have worked for the U.S. Forest Service as a botanist, bird biologist, and hydrology technician. Through my photography, I attempt to bring my experience of the world to you.
