Photography and travel have been my true passions for as long as I can remember. I love to explore, and it makes little difference whether it is in my own backyard of the Sonoran Desert in Scottsdale, Arizona, or some mountain village a half a world away in the Himalayas. Even though I have years of experience as a photographer and have worked in over 40 countries, I still love meeting people and telling their stories through photography. Equally satisfying is sharing my thoughts with other photographic travelers on how to connect with and record other cultures with dignity.
Currently, I divide my time between leading photography tours to Vietnam, India, Bhutan, Myanmar, Cambodia, Mexico and Peru, and working as the Art Director for "HarmonyWishes", a unique e-card website devoted to making a positive difference in the world. HarmonyWishesFineArt can be found on Etsy.
For assignments, I am currently represented by The Wideangle agency.
After living for years in Northern California and more recently Mexico, I now share my Scottsdale, Arizona home with my wife Meg and our two Cairn Terriers, Bodhi and Dharma.

""photosadhu" is indeed a "sadhu" when it comes to being with and understanding people before he captures their image......he has the utmost respect for the people he finds to photograph and truely believes in giving back rather than just walking off with another image for his portfolio. i just returned from traveling in vietnam with him as a "student" in his group and watched as everyone he came in contact with smiled after him.........he is definitely a force for the good on the planet."

"The great thing about flickr is that it allows you to stumble across great work you might otherwise not have seen. Photosadhu's images are stunning and he has his own distinctive style which I love."
