As the Director of Walton County Animal Control in Georgia, most of my daily photography is used to promote our shelter's dogs and cats via our website, waltonpets.net. This site is a place to keep some of my favorite previously posted Shelter Shots on display. It is also a place to share my passion and hobby: documenting the glorious creation given to us by the Divine Author. Please explore these pages and enjoy!
The Shelter Photography pages have some of my favorite dog and cat shots, as well as tips to improve your own shelter photos.
The Galleries pages highlight some of my favorite outdoor experiences and include journals of the journey or the stories behind the shots.
The Life List Photography page documents many of the animals I've come across in my years of outdoor exploration and animal control.
The Writing and Speaking...
Having a passion for animals, wildlife, nature, and God's creation, I have a desire to impart that to others. In addition to photography, I have been able to find expression of that passion through writing and public speaking with invitations to school classrooms, church groups, neighborhood associations and animal shelter conferences.
The Creation Speaks page highlights the writing and speaking ministry I have developed to reveal God's existence by detailing the wonders of His creation.
The Blog page is a series of journals and stories behind the photographs describing my daily animal encounters, nature notes and other musings.
"For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse." Romans 1:20

"THIS WORLD, as a glorious apartment of the boundless palace of the sovereign Creator, is furnished with an infinite variety of animated scenes, inexpressibly beautiful and pleasing, equally free to the inspection and enjoyment of all His creatures. In every order of nature, we perceive a variety of qualities distributed amongst individuals, designed for different purposes and uses, yet it appears evident, that the great Author has impartially distributed His favours to His creatures, so that the attributes of each one seem to be of sufficient importance to manifest the divine and inimitable workmanship."
Travels by William Bartram, American Naturalist, 1791
