I nest in Astoria, Oregon where I can be found flying from beach to forest to river, to mountain top, on a unending search for subjects rich in detail, atmosphere, and wonder. I scan the earth like a crow, looking to swoop down on any colorful thing I see. A god all crows worship made a beautiful world and it is my personal duty to learn about it and share its secret moments.

My journey with the birds began long ago. I incubated for a few years, then discovered Kodachrome film and hatched. I began fledging as digital photography was perfected.

My images find their way into galleries, calendars, magazines, and art fairs.

A dedicated Corvid thanks you. I hope you are pleased with what I have found for you.

What do you want to know about me? I purchased my first camera in 1978 because I was interested in birds. I gradually broadened my horizons. I worked as a seasonal Wildlands fire fighter and park ranger. I worked on various public lands from Everglades National Park in Florida to Olympic National Park in Washington.

I am not sure yet how all of this works, but I assume you can ask me questions through the contact feature.

So, what do you want to know?

Equipment:

I am currently using full frame digital cameras. I usually carry a tripod. I gravitate more toward primes than zoom lenses. I have a full arsenal of macro lenses. The 200 mm is my favorite. Some of the older images I have up-loaded are scans from medium format film, mostly Fujichrome Velvia 50.

Technique:

I favor large, high-quality RAW files and good light.
