"I started shooting as a hobby in 2001 and it quickly grew into a full time business. To date I’ve had articles and images published in, Outdoor Photographer Magazine, Natures Best Magazine, Nature Photographer Magazine, Photolife, Whisper In The Woods, Michigan Game Finder, NANPA’s Expressions Books, Pure Michigan Book, and Fujifilms Newsletter (Cable Release). I have won numerous local and international awards, and in 2006 was asked to join the Fuji Pro Talent Team. In 2006 I started offering Close-Up/Macro Photography Workshops. My first book was released in October 2008 called Tiny Landscapes. This is a how-to book for macro photography in nature. In 2009 I began offering online macro workshops and just released two new eBooks, "Macro Workshop eBook" and "Running A Successful Nature Photography Business".
