My passion for birds led to extensive travel to far-flung corners of the globe, that has included extended periods in India, Nepal, Australia, Europe, the Middle East and most recently Central and South America. My penchant for American birding was nurtured and inspired by extended halycon periods in Cape May, New Jersey from 1987-1995.
I have been photographing birds for two decades and my current gear consists of a 400mm 5.6 Lens & 1.4x teleconverter & a Speedlite 550 EX Flash. Many of my images have been published in books & magazines across Europe and North America including Birding World, Birdwatch, Birding and many other periodicals.
Naturescape Images incorporates my work as a nature writer, photographer, Illustrator and graphic designer. As a widely published artist and writer, my work has been featured in many books, notably the recent, award-winning Rare Birds Where and When by Russell Slack (2009).
I currently serve on the CT Avian Rare Records Committee (ARRC) and am a member of Nikon’s Birding ProStaff. I use Nikon EDG 8×42 binoculars and a Nikon Fieldscope II telescope.
