The Siena International Photography Awards recently recognized one of my images, Between the Sheets, in its annual photography competition. The image is of a kittiwake cruising over pack ice around 80º north in the Arctic Circle.

The image was entered into the Fragile Ice category and was awarded “Remarkable Artwork.”

Trip Report: Sea of Cortez

October 18, 2017

Our first organized trip to the Sea of Cortez was a success! Our group encountered playful sea lions at Los Islotes, whale sharks filter-feeding plankton in La Paz Bay, and dozens of mobula rays feeding at night in Isla Espiritu Santo National Park. We camped under the stars in the national park, soaked up the sun’s rays and had a healthy dose of vitamin sea!

Here are some images of what we encountered during that gorgeous week in Baja:

Earth Day Exhibit at Credit Suisse: Wroclaw, Poland

April 29, 2017

After much hard work on the part of Anna Trojnar-Gibki, an exhibit of my water images was unveiled in Wroclaw, Poland for Earth Day 2017. The exhibit is now on display in the Credit Suisse office at the Green Day Building on Szczytnicka Street.

On April 21, to kick off Earth Day, the bank held an event: “Doing Well, By Doing Good” which consisted of a presentation about responsible investment and an introduction to the exhibit.

The gallery of images will be exhibited through May 5. After which, the images will be auctioned off, and monies raised will go to Credit Suisse’s Charity of the Year, which focuses on children with cancer.

Many thanks to Anna Trojnar-Gibki for her relentless efforts to make this happen!
