My love of photography began many years ago when I was a young boy. I have always loved wildlife and art from as far back as I can remember. So my parents gave me the best gift - a Polaroid black and white instant camera. I was hooked after taking my first roll of film. Later on I graduated to film and bought a Canon AE-1. I spent years learning photography with a film camera - a Canon AE-1.
Then the digital camera was invented.
I stayed with Canon and currently shoot with the Canon 1DX, Canon 1DX Mark II and the Canon 1D Mark IV.
My love of animals, wilderness and photography have all come together in these galleries. I'm a Financial Advisor by day, Photographer by sunset. My favorite subjects to shoot include Eagles, Wolves, Bears and all wildlife.
National Parks are usually my favorite places to photograph wildlife and landscapes.
My favorite parks include:
Kaktovik, Barter Island, Alaska
Seal River, Manitoba, Canada
Lake Clark National Park, Alaska
Katmai National Park, Alaska
National Arctic Wildlife Refuge, Alaska
Grand Teton NP, Wyoming
Yellowstone NP, Wyoming
Zion, Bryce Canyon, Arches, Canyonlands and Dead Horse State Parks, all in Utah
Banff, Jasper and Algonquin Parks - in Canada
Samburu National Reserve, Kenya
Everglades National Park, Florida
I have also taken many pics at the "Jersey shore".
Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge in Galloway Township, NJ
Swimming River Reservoir in Colts Neck
Island Beach State Park, NJ -
These wildlife refuges have become my other favorite places to photograph birds and wildlife.
Several people have become important to me in my development as a photographer. Tom Mangelsen taught me to step back and compose an image that includes animals in nature. Tom has been the most important mentor of mine for years. Recently, another great photographer, Tin Man Lee has become a great teacher to me and many other people. His passion for the art goes well beyond the photo. I want to thank both these artists for teaching me how to create a great photo both from an emotional and technical perspective.
