As I mention on the “Hunting” page, I came to Southwest Missouri for the photography and ended up with an education in fishing and hunting as a bonus. Since my beginnings here in 1986 I have had the opportunity to fish and hunt all over the country in my capacity as a photographer. After working from Alaska to the Caribbean I can honestly say that in this part of my life theres no place I would rather be than at home with family in Southwest Missouri. As I write this the days are getting shorter and the air is cooler. Soon it will be fall again and time to let the air out of something. As far as the fishing goes I think the photography is as much about showing places that people see and WANT to go fish as much as it is showing pictures of fish.
