Everyone has to start somewhere. In order to start you have to have opportunity. Tanglewood Nature Center was that opportunity for me. Early in my photography Tanglewood was where I could go to see the natural world. It was here I discovered birds. It was here that I began down the path of discovery that lead me to the photography work I do today. Help support Tanglewood Nature Center so others may… Read More

One of the reasons I love going to Tanglewood Nature Center is for the opportunities for bird watching that the natural areas there provide. Birding There are plenty of opportunities to see all the birds one normally expects to see. However, The environment there provides habitat that is beneficial to birds that are not commonly seen around town.

One of the best things about nature is that it can quite literally exist anywhere. It is in the smallest things. And it is in the most mundane things. If we just open our eyes we can find nature. When we think of nature our minds often conjure up images of the grandiose. We think of the impressive, expansive nature that often feels too unattainable. In that we often lose the ability… Read More

Bird near Cayuga Lake

My photography tends to vacillate greatly between very planned photography where I have a subject and location that I will be photographing to basically what I would call adventure photography. Adventure photography is more like I get out in nature and enjoy myself and photograph whatever strikes me creatively or inspires me. Maybe I am exploring a new place and I want to be open to all possibilities. One thing I try… Read More

Baltimore Oriole perched on oak tree in Upstate, New York

One of my favorite song birds has always been the Baltimore Oriole. I don’t know if I like them because I grew up watching and playing baseball and the Baltimore Orioles were a team and one of the most popular players in baseball, Cal Ripken Jr., played on that team but that is certainly possible. Baltimore Orioles are probably one of the more well known species of birds again probably owing to… Read More

Grosbeak perch

I love nature. I enjoy nature in a wide variety of ways. One activity I really enjoy is watching birds. As someone whose always loved animals and been a science nerd simply observing bird behavior is endlessly fascinating and entertaining. As a photographer, creating photography of birds is enjoyable and challenging. More so than any other animal birds have the ability to appear one second and be gone the next. That lends… Read More

A big part of creating great photographs is simply being in the right place at the right time. As a photographer you can play a big role in this by just choosing to be present. But everything is not always in your control. This is especially true when photographing wildlife. For several days now I have been watching as Rose-Breasted Grosbeaks have been visiting our bird feeders. I don’t often see Rose-Breasted… Read More

Continue to stay the course. It doesn’t mean do what you normally would have done had the corona virus pandemic not occurred, but it means keep working at the goals and plans that you had already made. It means adapt those plans as best you can to fit into your life and your businesses in the way we have to operate now. My commitment this year was to work hard to grow… Read More

If our world hadn’t been upended by the corona virus I would have been leading my second migratory bird workshop at Eldridge Park, but that was not to be. Even though I am not currently able to go gather a group and guide them through some wildlife photography I still kept faith with myself and went to Eldridge Park solo. It was cold but mostly sunny this morning. I thought I would… Read More

Ducks on a pond

One service I was planning to gear up for this year was offering photography workshops. My first series of workshops was to begin the first week of April. I wanted to lead workshops on photographing migrating birds in our area…. Read More
