It’s been a fair bit of time since I’ve made a post, and I can tell you its not from a lack of image production on my side. I’ve made some noteworthy in-roads professionally in commercial photography, working more in Manhattan, which can be intermittently fun, exciting, harrowing, etcetera. In 2018 I’ve focused on a […]Read more "Raptor Collection"
An Eagle in winter. A captivating sight, with its gaudy talons, iconic shnoz, superb offensive line play. It has to be up there as far as animal encounters go. Twice this month I’ve gotten to witness the big bird bully a smaller one. Once a lone Eagle picking on a Common Merganser in Morristown New […]Read more "An Eagle In Winter"
It was a week of firsts for me at Tourne park, in North Jersey. Wetlands on the edge of dense forest create a host for many species, Redheaded Woodpecker, blue-gray Gnatcatcher, Great Crested Flycatchers and Scarlet Tanagers, all new to me and fun to catch flitting above foliage. The light is contrasty but the opportunities […]Read more "A Contrast in Size"
After a morning sports job in Kearny NJ, the sun was blasting and I knew I’d have a chance to find a new wildlife hot spot outside my normal haunts in north Jersey. I’d heard about some former landfills on the outskirts of Jersey and I set out towards a patch of green on my […]Read more "My Greatest Egret Excursion"
My next few series of pictures I’m not sure how to break up, as I better formulate what is, and is not shareable. Anyways, just being sharp is not enough anymore. I’ve been shooting spring sports like crazy and I’m overloaded with 20,500 pictures in 18 days. Absolutely crushing my shutter. I’ve been pretty good […]Read more "After the Thaw"
As frequently as I am struck by lens envy, I’ve been keeping an eye out for a purchase to assuage some of these feelings. I’ve figured I had decent stop gap lenses for group photos and action sports, although on my crop sensor 7D mkII, the wide end on the 70-200 is a little tight […]Read more "Winter Looking Glass"
The last of the laptop bird dumps. I took a break from paying attention between shoots at the studio to meticulously research every part of my new hypothetical desktop, birthed soon thereafter. A new file system and workflow and hard drives have come in handy for the near 3,000 pictures a week I’ve been taking […]Read more "Great Blue Heron; Wading and Soaring"
Since my first day spotting this bird I’ve been challenged in capturing its bright white features and grateful for the numerous occasions I’ve had to work those issues out. Over a few weeks this summer, almost every day I’ve observed what I believe to be the same Great Egret. More often than not, patiently plodding through […]Read more "White Winged; Great Egret Compilation"
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"
