Awards & Accolades

My Awards and Recognition

For most artists, our work speaks for itself.  However, in the world of “professional art” customers, buyers and collectors often like to know a little more about the artist.

When it comes to photography, I am self taught although I did take a few photography courses at university.  I have university degrees in geography and environmental science, which fuel my love of nature and outdoor photography, as well as my scientific and environmental stock photography portfolio.

My work has won awards from professional photography associations and my images have appeared in several publications.
