I started taking serious pictures when I was in the Peace Corps, in Cameroon, in the '70's.  That is where I fell in love with Africa, nature and photography.  Much later, in the '80's, I fell in love with a South African while living and working in NYC.  We go often, at least once a year, back to see his family.  Africa is rich with photographic subjects, but so is every corner of the world.  I live in the Hudson Valley now, which is such a great environment for birds, both in the summer and in the winter (the eagle here was photographed in Croton-on-Hudson, NY) and the Hudson River and the Valley constantly provide images for me to photograph. The background photo for all these pages is the bark of a birch tree I photographed in the Hudson Valley while hiking.  Still, I travel as often as I am able, and I love to photograph the world I see.

Please note, many of the images are not complete, either cut off at the top or sides, so that heads, beaks or other things are missing.  This is due to the fact that I am a photographer, not a website professional.  If you want to see a complete image, contact me.  Also, as you are I am sure aware, all photos on this website are copyright protected.
