After spending a couple of years in the behavioral health field, I started a new job at Saguaro National Park. I have a deep appreciation for the saguaro and the Sonoran Desert as a whole. The gallery showcases many early mornings and late nights after work.
The Macro World
Shooting the macro world gives us an opportunity to see what tends to be overlooked in day-to-day living. It's not just capturing a moment in time, but a specific dimension unattainable to the naked eye.
Photographing animals has always been a favorite challenge. I love the spontaneity and unpredictability of animal behavior, which makes capturing it all the more rewarding. Observing animals allow us to peer into the natural world on a level unlike any other. I feel a real connection with my surroundings when I am shooting animals. It truly forces me to concentrate on the present, to the point where I'm holding my breath. The animals in this gallery reside in my house, a zoo/museum, or the great wilderness.
