I live in the Midwest, we have long cold winters, and I am eternally grateful for the wonderful Des Moines Botanical Gardens. Here you can come out of the wind, snow, ice, and experience a tropical day. The palm trees, the tropical plants, the humidity, and the warmth make this a wonderful place to spend the afternoon. I have been a photographer for 3 years now, and just recently began volunteering at the Botanical gardens as a photographer. I find this very rewarding, there are always new things to photograph, new blooms, new plants, not to mention all of the activities that happen weekly.
I live in the capital city of Iowa, Des Moines. I work as a pharmacy technician, this is the job that helps support the photography obsession. My wife is a pharmacist, she also works to support me and my photography obsession. We have 2 grown children, both married and one with our 1st grandchild, who is just amazing and we love her.
I hope you enjoy these photographs, I hope to have a variety of subjects in the future, but flowers are my passion. Thanks.
