I began photographing rain forests in 1998 when on a trip to New Zealand to walk the Milford Track. I was fascinated by the rich and diverse foliage of the forests and the beauty of the ferns, palms and other plants found there. Later travels to Australia, Belize, the Amazon and other places presented new opportunities to venture into, and photograph, other rain forests.
