Artist’s Favorite Collection

Enjoy my artist’s favorite collection. In my twenty-plus-year career as a fine art nature photographer, I have had the pleasure of practicing photography on all seven continents. During that time, I have accumulated more memories than I can count, met more amazing people than I can name, and been caught in wild situations more than I can share. Each image here highlights something special for me, whether it is a favorite animal encounter, an unforgettable memory, or something about the composition that speaks to me; these are my favorites so far. These may or may not end up in Chicago’s Art Institute, but they are special to me. As an artist it is fun to reflect back on each of these images. Please feel free to email or call me to find out why these made the choice.
