I was born in Clinton, Oklahoma and now live in Weatherford, Oklahoma with my three cats. My interest in photography grew from my love of the outdoors. I love being around the wildlife and seeing things very few people have seen. I've seen nature the way it really is. I've seen animals struggle for life and lose. I've seen them run and play, and I've seen them die so that others could live. Many of these times, I've been the only one to witness these events, and I strive to share these moments with others through my photography.
I started taking pictures as a hobby and it quickly grew into a part-time business. I became a full-time photographer in 1998.
My images have appeared in magazines, calendars, post cards, screen savers, key chains, and books. My photo credits include Outdoor Oklahoma, Oklahoma Today, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Wildlife Management Institute, Outdoor Life, American Hunter, Impact Photo Graphics, Wyoming Wildlife, Safari Magazine, Turkey Call Magazine, National Wildlife, Smith Southwestern, among others.
Yellowstone National Park is my favorite place to photograph, and I travel there each spring, fall and winter. I also concentrate my efforts at the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge near my home, photographing whitetail deer, bison, blacktail prairie dogs, eastern collared lizards, and turkeys. Other efforts include the photography of wild horses in southwestern Wyoming. Unless otherwise specified, all wildlife were taken in the wild.
