I am long life long photographer and lucky enough to travel all over world to continue my passion of photography. Photography is the best career if I ever started over again. I am concerned with justice, racial equality, wildlife preservation, food sustainability, protection of the environment, and all cultures rich and poor.
I have published fine art photography books on my travels to East Africa, Volumes I & II, Cuba, Nepal & Bhutan, Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, Southern Africa, and the Galapagos Islands. And a portraiture book in monochrome entitled Lines of My life. I love collaborating with different types of artist in a photo theme. I shoot with Nikon digital camera equipment. I am currently working on a book length fine portraiture project about the Hunza Valley in northern Pakistan.
