I’m from Texas and have also lived in Western Australia. Now, as of 2021, I’m based in Queensland’s D’Aguilar Range. A fascination with insects first drew me to the natural world, but now my interest has expanded to plants, fungi, birds, snails, reptiles, spiders... essentially everything.

For my white background photos I use a white perspex board and flashes. This allows for studio-style photos in the field. Specimens are always photographed live and then released.

Similar photos have proven useful for scientific publication and conservation outreach purposes, perhaps because portraits in isolation can sometimes create a more intimate perspective.
