I’ve spent so much time capturing my outdoor adventures through these photographs that I’ve never made time to share them until now. Hopefully you will enjoy viewing these images as much as I’ve enjoyed being on the trail and on the water capturing them.
I’m as passionate about hiking as I am about nature photography. My primary camera body is the full-frame Nikon D850, a high resolution (45 megapixels) DSLR that produces incredibly detailed images. Since I like going on hikes anywhere from 2 to 10 hours long, the weight of the D850 becomes a real problem, so I decided to get the Nikon Z50, a very light mirrorless body, along with two incredibly light lenses that will cover virtually any subject I find on the trail.
This shot is one of the first I made with “Z,” and I’m very pleased with the quality. Seems there are a lot of mushrooms popping up early this year. The unusual, amoeba-like shape of this one caught my eye as I was hiking around the stream on the Sanders Hill loop in the Kennebec Highlands.

Fall’s a good time to look down! The saturated yellows, greens, oranges, and browns are a photographer’s dream — especially after a rainy day.
