Frigid and glacial, with powerful blasts of icy wind, Antarctica is no place for warm, cuddly creatures. Or so it would seem.
Yet Antarctica is home to vast penguin colonies - the wonderfully humanoid birds that define "warm and cuddly." While journeying to Antarctica, I have been privileged to photograph eight species of penguins, seven of which are portrayed here.
I consider my Antarctica travels a high point of my life. As you view my pictures and read my stories, I hope that you can share the sense of wonder I feel for these creatures and the wondrous place they call home.
On the portfolio pages, you can see my favorite photographs of penguins; these are available matted or framed in several sizes. I print and mat the photographs myself, ensuring that the colors are vibrant and the matting is archival.
Some of my penguin photographs are portraits, but I also like to portray behavior in my pictures. In Antarctica, I was also intrigued by the vast landscapes and icebergs. Some of these photographs are printed in large sizes and they provide the dramatic setting for the lives of the penguins.
As you view this web site, you may become interested in visiting Antarctica; if so, you can email me and I will let you know of some companies that will take you on the journey of your life.
