Mom was a hiker and a trailblazer from upstate New York, and Dad was born in Indonesia where he learned to appreciate what nature had to offer. They both were nature lovers and they passed that on to all five of their kids. I guess I was meant to be outdoors. Since I was a little kid it was sports, skateboarding, woods, water, animals and anything that would get me out of the house. Surfing took me to other countries and more recently I'm lugging my camera stuff all over Florida and beyond. After some great experiences shooting weddings, families and sports, I decided I'd rather shoot nature even though birds, flowers, and sunrises don't pay $$$. It's definitely not about the Benjamins. I wouldn't have it any other way. (Thanks Mom & Dad)
