"In wildness is the preservation of the world." -Henry David Thoreau

My deepest peace comes when I'm immersed in nature...whether that is walking through waist-high prairie grasses, wading in tanin-stained swamps, or scrambling over treeline in the mountains. I hold degrees in Biology and Geography and currently work for the National Park Service in South Florida. I'm passionate about conserving habitat and the wildlife that it contains. You're likely to find me out taking photographs in much of my spare time. I hope that you are inspired by some of the results!

    Doug Greenberg says:

    "Judd is the most talented young nature and landscape photographer I've come across in a loooong time. He has an amazing eye for composition and color, and he clearly is dedicated to mastering the technical aspects of his craft. His photos never cease to amaze me. When he becomes widely known at sometime in the not-distant future, we in our humble Flickr community can say we knew him way back when. . ."
