About Me

Photographer with Chickadee

Thanks for stopping by my online portfolio site! I am a passionate photographer and lover of nature — I have a special fondness for arthropods, carnivorous plants, non-passerine birds and weird geology.

I’ve lived and traveled across the world and have called cities from Denver, Colorado to Douarnenez, France and Sydney, Australia home. Right now, I’m based in Portland, Oregon in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I like it a lot here.

I have held internships at the Field Museum in Chicago, and at the Denver Zoo. I have worked in ecology, paleontology and herpetology labs, and currently work as a technical writer.

When I’m not taking photos or working, I can be found playing Mass Effect, writing poetry, baking cupcakes or drinking tea.

If you’d like to get in touch about my photos, or just want to say hello, feel free to drop me a note at lee@snakephotographer.com.
