About Me

_IGP8208_edited-1

I have been photographing wildlife and wilderness landscapes for more than 40 years. I’m a four-time award-winning member of the New York State Outdoor Writers Association and my articles and photographs have been published in books, magazines, and newspapers. I’ve roamed the valleys of Yellowstone, the canyons of Utah, the marshlands of Florida, the Pennsylvania Wilds, the North Maine Woods, the Quebec wilderness and throughout the American and Canadian Rockies–22 states and 4 Canadian provinces in all–in search of elusive wildlife and spectacular scenery to photograph. I live on a gravel road in the backwoods of New York State’s Southern Tier–far from the concrete canyons of Manhattan–from where I can also focus on New York’s beautiful Finger Lakes Region and the wild Adirondack North Country. I write an outdoor column for two newspapers and freelance articles for magazines, and I’ve authored four books on wildlife photography.

“If I can spend a day in the woods and bring back one excellent photo — whether it’s a chipmunk or a moose — then I’ve had a good day!”
