Creating Images of the Natural World for Scholarship and Conservation
With each photo that I create, the image is not simply about seeing the animal but having an insight into their life, and a deeper understanding of their behavior and how they relate to each other and their world.
Through sharing my images, I hope to bring a greater understanding and appreciation of the natural world in order to further research and conservation.
