Phoenix, AZ

After spending 33 years in the automotive industry, I escaped Corporate America in 2007 to become a freelance photographer. I started a business called The Main Event Imaging LLC, specializing in underwater, nature, landscape and motorsports photography.

Celebrating and emphasizing the aesthetic value of nature, I want my images to leave people touched, moved and inspired in a way that empowers them to take ownership and stewardship of the natural world.

Most of our environmental struggles originate from an out-of-sight, out-of-mind scenario that threatens the equilibrium of our life support system that we call Planet Earth. Understanding that people protect what they love, I am committed to capturing nature's moments while sharing the resulting images as a form of
environmental activism.

I strive to make Mother Nature my Main Event. As she is worth the fight.
