Inspired by the great Steve Irwin, my passion for nature has grown ever since my exposure to his TV series. My grandfather developed his photos in dark rooms and I found this out years later from my mother after pursuing photography myself. My passion stirred up her fond, childhood memories. I strongly believe in our connection to the natural world and strive to reveal this in my photos, similarly to how Steve did via his television show. We must protect the delicate and unique environments that create diversity for all life on this earth.
