The End of the Year

2019 has been unexpectedly good to me and my photography this year. I’ve made new contacts, two won awards – one from the Federation of American Societies of Experimental Biologyand the other placed in the very prestigious Images from Science 3, I sold art to a luxury condo in the Cayman Islands, and I like to think I grew as an artist. I’m fortunate to have my wife, for she is my best friend and has continually encouraged and supported me along the way (not to mention my outstanding friends and family and fans that have also supported me in numerous ways). I hope that 2020 brings just as many successes and more learning opportunities. For now, though, I have put together one last image for the year 2019. A black and white composite of three South American cichlids, two of which have occupied a great deal of my time, scientifically, over the past year and will likely continue to do so for several years to come (Images will be up for sale by the end of the day). Happy New Year!

“Dasyatis sabina” selected for Prestigious “Images from Science 3”

I’m beyond ecstatic to announce to everyone that my image of a cleared and stained Atlantic stingray (Dasyatis Sabina; below) was selected for entry into the very prestigious “Images from Science 3” exhibit.

I was fortunate to attend the opening of the exhibit, which took place this past weekend at the Rochester City Art Space in Rochester, New York. It was a thrilling, yet humbling experience that I was honored to share with a number of fantastic photographers, illustrators, and fellow scientists.

The exhibit will remain open at the RIT City Art Space until November 24th, where it will then be moved to John Hopkins University. After an exhibit there, it will be available to travel the world for the next several years. I look forward to seeing where
