Born in Rochester NY, the home of Kodak, Cam grew up exposed to photography as an art form. As a child his summers were spent at a family cabin in the Adirondack Mountains, where he was immersed in the natural beauty and outdoor activities of the region, which nurtured his love of pristine natural settings and wildlife. At a young age Cam became interested in photographing the landscape around him, and after getting his first point and shoot camera at age 8, his passion for nature photography began. By high school his passion had become an all-encompassing love, and in 2009 he was lucky enough to be selected for a National Geographic expedition to Ecuador and the Galapagos. This experience convinced him once and for all that nature photography was the career path he wanted to take.
