Philosophy

Thank you for visiting!

My philosophy is to take the time to get the right shot. I prefer to spend an hour adjusting myself around the subject (position, aperture, etc) than to spend an hour adjusting a photo in post production.

My equipment: Nikon D5000 camera with a zoom and a macro lens. I started out taking really close up shots of really small objects. Over the  years, my subjects have gotten larger and larger – and further away, especially with the addition of my new 70-300mm lens (which I adore!).

My passion is the natural world in it’s native environment.  The worst feeling for me is to witness something spectacular in nature and not have my camera with me. Fortunately, with the increasing power and presence of the mobile phone camera, I *do* always have a camera on me.  My preference is always my Nikon, but if sometimes timing requires a mobile camera, I’m OK with that. My iPhone 6s takes surprisingly great wide angle shots.

This is just a hobby for me, but if you really really love one of my photos, I would happily order an archival quality print of it at a low cost.  Please visit my Etsy store for details on what’s for sale.

Comments and criticisms are welcomed!

    1. Thank you David. That’s kind of you to say. :). That reminds me. I should clean out my Flickr photostream. There’s some really old stuff in there!
