Thanks for visiting my galleries. I have been an avid "birder" and nature photographer for many years. I taught high school for 36 years and at the same time owned and operated a successful wedding photography studio. Now that I'm retired, my wife and I can usually be found outside observing and photographing the natural world. Although the "focus" of my attention is usually avian, I enjoy photographing mammals, and landscapes as well. My galleries are broken down into the four seasons of the the year-I post what I have photographed during that particular season. I lead bird walks for several local nature centers as well as teach nature photography classes.  Contact me if you would be interested in a private or small group lesson. Thanks for taking the time to visit my website. I hope to meet you on the trails. You can also follow me on FLICKR at
