YELLOWSTONE AND TETON NATIONAL PARKS

This fall I was asked to put on a presentation for The Photographic Society of America’s 75th annual conference. Since this year the conference was to meet in West Yellowstone at the end of September (the best time of the year to be in Yellowstone) I quickly agreed. Of course I decided that I would…

BIRDS AND BUNNIES IN THE BIG APPLE

This summer I had a week to kill between two shows on the east coast. Since I had no idea where I wanted to go or what I wanted to shoot, I was very happy to get an email from Doug Rodda a great photographer that lives near New York city.  Doug noticed that I…

SPRING WARBLERS AND OTHERS

Being a Michigan photographer, I am lucky to live within an hours drive of Crane Creek State Park in Ohio, one of the best places in the country for photographing migrating warblers.

THE GALAPAGOS ISLANDS

I have to say the Galapagos Islands is nature photography Nirvana. It really was unlike anything I had experienced before.  I have been blessed on many occasions to have many of my subject’s accept me as part of their natural world, but that has typically come after many hours, days, weeks, months, or even years…

GREAT SMOKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK

As I mentioned in a previous post, I was invited down to Knoxville Tennessee to put on my multi-media presentation “A Wilderness Year” for the Southern Appalachian Nature Photographers Association.  While I was down in that area, I was able to get a few days shooting in at Great Smoky Mountain National Park.  We really…
