The Elegant Leopard

It’s so hard to describe how amazing it is to be five feet away from these elegant cats and they just simply don’t care that we were there. We photographed Leopards on fourteen different occasions and saw eight individuals. […]

Some really Cool Waterfowl

It’s been a long time since I worked with critters in the amplitude that I was in Africa. It was a lot of reteaching myself how to shoot. Looking back at my images now that the trip was over I started critiquing myself a little bit more. I’m still quite happy with my results but […]

One of my favorite things about being a Wildlife Photographer is finding patterns that occur in nature. One of the most obvious examples is one that we all have grown up with since we were kids, the Zebra. When I was a kid I remember the question are they black with white stripes or white […]

Isolating those moments in Africa

Going to Africa I was torn between bringing my 200-400 and my 600f4. I was always told to bring the 200-400 because everyone said it was the perfect range of lens. Once I was there I completely understood why I was told that. It is a great range to use and I used my 70-200 […]

The Need for Power

This is one of those items that I tend not to think about as much because up until this past year I hadn’t used with it very much. Over the last couple of years I have started to use my SB-900 flash more often with my Aviation projects and this past year I have been […]

Oh I Hate Clothes Shopping

I must be a somewhat typical guy because I really don’t like clothes shopping. Unless it gets to the point where there are too many holes in my pants, shirts or shorts then I don’t see the point in buying replacements. Well this is one of those occasions where the job requires something new. The […]
