Photography Services

My goal is to provide photographic services to enhance the communication of your research and conservation efforts.  I capture unique moments that reveal an animal’s essence, in order for the viewer to become connected in a tangible way. I aim to focus my images on the animal’s behavior, personality, habitat, and natural history — through persistence and patience to find captivating perspectives and sometimes humor that pulls an audience into the animal’s world. Through my images I strive to emotionally connect the viewer and bring an awareness and desire to protect that species and its ecosystem, engaging people that are unaware of the issues and leading them to resources on how they can help.

I approach the opportunity to make each photograph with the animal’s welfare foremost in mind, and an ethical awareness and cultural sensitivity to the animals and local people.

Artistic images help to raise the profile of your research and may increase the likelihood of appearing on the cover of high-impact journals.
