About the Photographer:  I have been taking photographs since age 10. I  travel around the world in search of good fly fishing, mushroom hunting and photography options. Lately my favorite things to photograph are mushrooms. Aside from photographing fungi, I love to bring home gourmet edible mushrooms and cook with them. I am also an avid fly fisher, gardener and traveler. Minnesota has some of the finest mushrooming in the country and morels are always the most exciting to find in the woods each spring.
