I am a professional biologist who regularly visits and photographs some of the most unique natural areas and species in the Upper Midwest (USA). I specialize in nature photography, with the subject matter of my stock photography diverse, including images of invertebrates, vertebrates, flora, native plant communities, landscapes, etc. The majority of my work has been shot in Iowa and Illinois (USA), although I have photographed natural areas and wildlife in other parts of the country on occasion. Most recently, I have focused on photographing the distinguishing characteristics of Midwest flora for plant identification guides. I welcome requests to photograph common or rare Upper Midwest plants, animals, and natural areas by assignment and look forward to prospect.
