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 […]

In nine days of game drives I came back with over 70 different species photographed! Now some of those are fleeting moments of critters as we were passing by but […]

A New albeit common one for the files

Yesterday I talked about going to those old haunts over and over again. Well as I said there is always the chance of improvement and then there is the chance of something new. While I was on the Gallatin I noticed this Spotted Sandpiper, a common bird but one that I have never photographed but […]

My 1000th Blog Post!

You know it’s funny how fast time goes by. You start one project never knowing just how far it will go or how long you keep it going and before you know it, a few years have gone by and you’re left wondering where all that time went. Back in 2008 when I first started […]

How do you get better Photographing critters?

This seems to be a popular topic and it’s one that I think about often. In reality there is a pretty obvious answer that always seems to get missed. You got to keep going out and trying. That really is the trick with it. Doing homework and finding out where the critters will be increase […]

It’s Spring Time and the Critters are out There

It’s finally Spring and that means that the kids are out. I love this time of the year because there are so many possibilities of photographing parents and their kids doing what they do. It’s a whole other challenge of cpaturing that part of the life cycle without endangering the critter and it’s a very […]
