The simple facts... I'm currently living in Kansas City, Missouri. I've always had a great passion for nature and wildlife and as a child discovered a passion for photography as well and the two just seem to work perfectly together.
I do what I do because I love it! I spend every free moment I have outdoors and every available dollar I can on travel and equipment.
Conservation is the biggest point to what I do.
I specialize in venomous reptile and other herpetological photography, because I find it interesting and because these are the underdogs of the natural world.
My point in providing this information is to show that average people with tight budgets can work to improve and enjoy our natural resources.
