"I photograph the wild creatures of our planet in hopes of touching the viewer's senses and giving the viewer a feeling of the animal's energy. The breath of a grizzly bear on a crisp fall morning as it searches for food. The sound of entangled antlers between two bull elk in the rut. The dusty haze surrounding two fighting mustangs around a water hole. Photographing the sights, sounds and smells of nature's interactions is my continual challenge."
