Floyd Sandford is a Professor Emeritus of biology at Coe College and resides in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. When Floyd went to Africa as a Peace Corps volunteer in the 1960s, he took a Pentax 125 SLR camera with him, and has been taking photographs on his journeys ever since.  He used the same camera for nearly 40 years until it was crushed after a 100+ foot fall in a duffle bag from a tree canopy in the Manu Biosphere Reserve in the Peruvian Amazon. He now uses a digital camera and continues to photograph his travels.
