Welcome to my website Knowledge and Light; devoted to knowledge and the preservation of our natural world and treasured wildlife.
The purpose of my website is to inspire an appreciation for nature through the sharing of natural history (knowledge) and photography (light). My goal is to portray the marvelous and intrinsically valuable essence of wildlife.
Natural history and photography is my passion and life time pursuit; with every nature experience, I discover something new about myself and our natural world.
I am honored and humbled to have won First Place in the 2016 Audubon Photography Competition. My winning image is published in both Audubon and Nature’s Best Photography magazines and beginning in October 2016, my winning photograph will be on display at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History for a period of 1 year.
