I am a freelance nature photographer, specializing in avian, wildlife & nature photography.  My passion for birds & nature started at a very early age. However, it wasn't until my kayaking, canoeing & camping excursions that I felt the need to capture these experiences on film. I have pursued bird photography across the continent, but now tend to focus more on my native Vancouver Island. Many images have been published in books, magazines, birding guides, nature and conservation publications. An early Steller's Jay photo was chosen from thousands of entries to be used as the representation image for the provincial bird on the BC Bird posters.
