As a nature lover, I’m committed to treating nature with respect and am Community Advocate (Netherlands and Belgium) for Nature First, the Alliance for Responsible Nature Photography.
I grew up in the 50’s on the north-eastern coast of the United States. I bought my first camera when I was 18, following in my mother’s and grandfather’s footsteps. But life got in the way, as it sometimes does, so it wasn’t until after my retirement in The Netherlands that I started taking my photography seriously. My work has been published in On Landscape (UK), The Luminous Landscape (CA), and Natuurfotografie (NL).
I’ve always loved to write and, besides articles on photography, I have also written and published an autobiography and keep a blog (somewhat erratically) on various topics which you can find here under Essays.
