I’m a photographer of wildlife, based in Chicago, Illinois. I’ve been taking pictures since 2015, when I picked up my first camera - the Canon 70D. 

My work has been published around the world and I have won several  awards, including PDN's Great Outdoors competition and the Washington Post's Annual Travel Photographer contest. 

It is a great honor to have been recognized by Sigma, Photographers Forum, the Smithsonian, National Geographic as well as WildPlanet Magazine.

The photographs you see here were all taken in Tanzania and Virunga National Park in the DRC in 2015, 2016 and 2017.  

Today, my equipment consist of Canon's 1DX MKII and 5DMK4 cameras. My primary lenses for wildlife are Canon's:

70-200MM F/2,8

100- 400 MM f/2.8

24-70 MM f/2.8

And, Sigma's 35mm f/1/4 Art lens. 

I use my photographs to bring awareness and inspires others to take action, take a trip and get out to enjoy and experience this wonderful planet that we live.  One of the initiatives that I'm currently supporting is rehabbing the medical infrastructure for Kuria village in Tanzania.  Details and pics of the project are located under "The Kuria Tribe of Tanzania." 

 If you are interested in using any of pictures for such charitable causes let me know. I'm happy to grant rights and send the high rez files.
