It’s around the end of the second year I’ve been photographing birds and I think I’ve done well to vary my approach, and learn about these creatures, and of course make plenty of images. Where I had luck I tried to go back, and I think I really got the sense of what is going on […]Read more "Blues, Greens and Black Crowns"
WELL it’s that time again, from the early summer months until now in the frigid late November, I’ve been storing up a good 35 thousand new images, and its time to parcel and blast them out. For the fall months I was slammed again with sports work, which is often fun, (I’ve thrown some into […]Read more "New Jersey’s Chance Ibis"

I’ve been lucky to be getting steady work in studio with good people, shooting for catalog, as well as the occasional location shoot, Paterson NJ, Woodstock […]Read more "Swamplog III; Years End"
