Mid 20's hobbyist, photographer, and naturalist.
Specializing in creative and detailed portraiture of all things living.

Interests: nature.

I possess a passion for the living world, the stream, the forest, and all that encompasses the two, the aquatic world as much as the terrestrial. Their complex interdependence and profound evolutionary anomalies never cease to impress. I strive to be as handy and creative as I am nerdy. I enjoy creative people and random conversation, imagination, skinny dipping, vintage, orchids, honesty and the smell of rain, angles of interpretation and life in general…

Pursuing imagery glorifying the beauty of native stream fish is a passion of mine, followed closely by the intricacies of native orchids and amphibians. I attempt to incorporate the art of discovery and use of imagination in my continual quest to explore and document biodiversity and ecological interactions of our local natural history in a manner which satisfies my personal perspective.

The most beautiful thing in the world is, precisely, the conjunction of learning and inspiration. Oh, the passion for research and the joy of discovery!
- Wanda Landowska
