These are words that my family and friends never expected to hear me say. After growing up too close to the outdoors in British Columbia, Canada, I fled to large cities and pursued a career indoors as a lawyer for many years.
Then a few years ago, I found time to start volunteering with animal rescue groups. Fortuitously, I picked up a DSLR at the same time and decided to learn how to use it. Naturally, I pointed my lens at animals ... and was captivated. I completed the International Center of Photography's Continuing Education Track Program in 2015, and now I devote much of my spare time to portraiture of rescued animals.
