I love how dogs see the world...
To a dog, a ball is not just a ball. That shiny, slobbery plaything is an opportunity, a challenge, a steadfast companion. In my dog photography I strive to glimpse life on their level—A bowl of food is love and comfort. A warm bath is the ultimate back rub. A knock at the door is a chance to prove courage and loyalty. Therein capturing the reality of modern dog ownership—a reminder to enjoy the small things.
My journey with dogs began with Annie, my intensely brave and loving Boston terrier rescue, followed shortly after by her adopted brothers Murray and Ollie, who are just as full of attitude. This wild trio keeps me laughing and from taking life too seriously. They also brought about my passion for matching the click of a camera with the wagging tail of a happy dog.
My life in photography has been a wild ride. In addition to the chaotic world of canines, I pursue projects and assignments dedicated to my intense love of the natural world and exploration. I'm a contributing photographer to National Geographic Creative and a photo graduate of Rochester Institute of Technology. When I’m not making photos or chasing after the pups, I enjoy spending time in the great outdoors, volunteering with animal rescue and practicing my downward dogs.
