Nature, wildlife and landscape photography are my favorites. Although based in San Francisco, California, I travel Northern California, Oregon, Hawaii and the Western Pacific for my work. I specialize in nature photography, with my photographs being especially liked for the creatures, colors and settings. I love San Francisco for urban scenes and scenery. Hawaii is my favorite for tropical scenery. Palau is my favorite for underwater life. I started photography as a hobby when I took my first trip to Alaska and continued with travel photos, often to remote and interesting places. After many years, I studied in the Masters in Photography program at Academy of Art University in San Francisco. Beginning with my first scuba diving in 2004 in Palau, I found that scuba trips interfered with the class schedule so chose to learn by experience and wonderful Internet classes. With each weekend photography venture and each trip, I add photos to this site. New photos will remain in the current year gallery, then be moved to other galleries as a new year starts.
