Artist | Hobbyist | Photography
United States
I am a photographer hobbyist based near St Louis, Missouri.

I bought my first dslr camera in 2009 and started taking photography more seriously. I enjoy taking pictures of all subjects, but I do enjoy capturing nature and wildlife the most.

This fun hobby has now become a passion and an obsession, and it has allowed me to express myself in new ways.

My other passion is being on dA, and looking at all the amazing and inspirational images from incredibly talented artists. Their works inspire me to become a better photographer.

Thanks for visiting my gallery!

Hi! I am absolutely in love with your photography. Among other things, I tend to post lots of nature photos on my tumblr that I think are really cool/high quality. Would it be all right if I shared some of your photos there, using DA's tumblr share button so it would give credit and a link back to the deviation here on the site? Thanks!
