I’ve been rethinking the areas I go to see wildlife, trying to get the most out of my time spent and better grasp the region. I’ve been splitting my time, more or less inadvertently along a few rivers from Morristown, to the Great Swamp. Morristown being along the northern most edge of the Piedmont Plains […]Read more "Morristown’s Solitary Swan"
In the past weeks I’ve been capturing the many species of Speedwell Lake in Morristown, New Jersey. A 500 yard dogleg right with a surprisingly full crowd of hungry birds; Double Crested Cormorants, at least 3 Great Blue Heron, a lone Great Egret, Black Capped Night Heron, and Green Heron. All of which I hope to […]Read more "A Gulp of Cormorants"
I’ve been skipping the swamp walks for the last few weeks and for the most part stayed local for my hobby shoots. Might have something to do with those new boots I haven’t quite found yet or the different freelance sports gigs I was busy with for a few weeks.

And I expect soon to know much more about the reptiles I hope […]Read more "Swamp Log Part II; Spring Motion"

My schedule and myself being adversely affected by mornings, it’s been a particular challenge to shoot for more than an hour or two with the strength of the sun, […]Read more "Great Swamp Log Part 1; Early Thaw"
Well I’ve finally begun to upgrade my gear, and I’m stoked to be shooting with the 7D MkII, paired with the 70-200 f/2.8L. Shooting birds requires some serious hustle, but I’m starting to get used to the AF tracking system, and the control layout. The results have been decent so far, for only taking it […]Read more "New Journeys"
One of my more serious attempts at capturing live metal, using my old gear. I was right in front of the speakers where the vocals were basting out, and it makes for a nice video. I’ve recently found out that I will be co-directing and producing the new Die Choking video, which I’m really stoked […]Read more "Long Island’s Artificial Brain live video; Die Choking update"
