About Michael Finkle a.k.a Nature Crank

profile_picLife is a journey. My journey involves an addiction to nature. Before photography, I ventured in a couple other successful home-based businesses but couldn’t stand being trapped between the same four walls all day long. I have professional degrees in business and religion. While being an U.S. Army infantryman, I felt the call to become a chaplain — which never happened. After an accident breaking my back, this pretty much sealed my military fate.

Keep up with my latest adventures in my journal and see the gear I use here. Photos are available for purchase at Mixxify.
