Just Added!

Recent Work Galleries now updated (as of this week in August 2018). This section now contains Galleries for Texas Gulf Coast, Red Rock country- winter, Oregon coast, BC interior- Grizzlies, Cape Churchill polar bears as well as updates from Close to Home in Ontario and Amazon dart frogs photographed in Ontario. I also include a selection from Havana Cuba.

Some Changes to note:

As of August 2018 I have moved images from older Recent Work Galleries to their appropriate subject galleries. These galleries continue to grow so you may wish to use the Search feature to find a targeted group of images, if you are looking for something specific.

Coming soon

European River Cruise, Newfoundland, Falkland Islands. Upcoming projects include Costa Rica and shortly a tour out west for grizzly bears and scenics.
