My wife, Linda, and I live in a secluded house in the woods of central Pennsylvania where we cherish the nature all around us. I am a busy family physician, and since my time is limited I do most of my nature photography in our local area or when we are on vacation in our favorite places in the North Carolina Outer Banks, Maine,Vermont or West Virginia. Linda and I have two dogs that we show in agility, obedience, and breed competitions. I also enjoy photographing them during their shows and when we take them on hikes wherever we go. I owe my love of photography to my father who gave me a 35mm camera when I was twelve years old and shared his photographic knowledge with me.
