One day in 2008, while on the computer, there was a WPBT – Public Broadcasting Television station having a silent auction fundraiser. I discovered that there was a small group travel company that donated a trip to see Polar Bears in the wild as one of the auction items, a Polar Bear Trip – to see Polar Bears ….. In the wild? Wow!! – that sounded interesting, so I went to their website. There I found trips to see all kinds of animals and nature around the world – Harp Seals in Canada, all kinds of animals in Africa & Penguins in Antarctica, Tigers in India, Whales in Baha and British Columbia, the Galapagos Islands and Bears in Alaska and more … Whew!! – I was amazed!!!!!!! My youngest son was turning 6 at the time and I decided our very first trip would be to the Galapagos Islands.
And that’s where and when my passion for photographing nature started. It was no big deal at first – I took pretty good pictures. I also made a photo book – WOW – how exciting to be able to show your family and friends the pictures I took and what I experienced. Since then I’ve traveled to Antarctica, Africa, the Arctic, Canada, Alaska, Baja Mexico, China, South America, Costa Rica, Cuba, Cayman Islands, Iceland, Greenland, Europe, Utah, Nevada, Montana, Colorado and more.
