    Kevin has a very unique ability to capture images that “speak” to people. His patience and calmness has a direct influence on the animals he photographs. There seems to be a trust between the animal and the human. He continues to amaze all of us as he produces images of animals almost daily. We all wonder how he can find these moments. I truly feel he is one of the up and coming talents in the wildlife genre and will be a staple for a long time to come.
