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.

“If you will cling to Nature, to the simple in Nature, to the little things that hardly anyone sees, and that can so unexpectedly become big and beyond measuring; if you have this love of inconsiderable things and seek quite simply, as one who serves, to win the confidence of what seems poor: then everything will become easier, more coherent and somehow more conciliatory for you, not in your intellect, perhaps, which lags marveling behind, but in your inmost consciousness, waking and cognizance.”
~Rainer Maria Rilke
