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 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 5D Mark IV and 7D cameras. My primary lenses for wildlife are Canon's:
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. I don't sell my work but I do use it to help raise funds for causes that I support such a Virunga's Ranger Fund, improvements to infrastructure and care in remote villages throughout Africa and wildlife conservation. If you are interested in using any of pictures for such causes let me know. I'm happy to grant rights and send the high rez files.
