“They (animals) are not just living things; they are beings with lives… that makes all the difference in the world…next time you are outside…notice the first bird you see…you are beholding a unique individual with personality traits, an emotional profile, and a library of knowledge built on experience…what you are witnessing is not just biology, but a biography.”
~ Jonathan Balcombe

My subject interest started with landscapes and have evolved to bird photography. As time progressed, so did my equipment and techniques and have become obsessed with capturing the most natural and detailed images possible. The learning curve will never stop as with the passion to film such beautiful creatures.

I primarily shoot in the Pacific Northwest along the Washington coast and on several Indian Reservations, where I find eagles and pelicans along the coast either lounging or fishing.

Bird photography is a type of wildlife photography specifically associated with photographing birds. Bird photographers use cameras with fast shutter speeds, good low-light performance and imageresolution, as well as fixed and zoom lenses to photograph birds from a distance without affecting their behavior.

I’m offering my photographs for sale in a multitude of options from downloads, paper prints, fine art prints and desk art. Photographs are available and standard and custom sizes and panoramic sizes in a variety of media and framing options.

Just like you would commission a painting, you can hire me to create an image (or many images) for you with the medium of digital photography!
