I'm a Canadian
near Toronto (Ontario). For many years I have had a keen interest in
both birds and photography - uniting my passions for photography and
technology with those for nature and the beauty of flying. Holding a
private pilot's license ensures that my primary enjoyment comes from
aspects relating to flight, and therefore bird photography. Despite
that, I try to
explore other areas such as landscapes, macro, and mammal photography
when opportunities arise. Regardless of the
desire is to make powerful, visually arresting, razor sharp images.
While good equipment doesn't necessarily make someone a photographer, it certainly improves your odds of success. I'm currently using the following Canon equipment:
7D Mark II
24-70 2.8 II
70-200 f2.8 IS II
1000-400 f4.5-5.6 IS II
300 f2.8 IS
600 f4 IS II
1.4x/2x III extenders
600EX flash/Gitzo 5541LS tripod/many other accessories
All images are available for purchase as a print, or for publication and licensing. Please contact me if you would like more details - and bear in mind that I have many photos in my archives that are not shown here, and I might have just what you're looking for!
Publication credits include Audubon Magazine (and web), Birder's World (now BirdWatching), National Geographic Magazine, ofo.ca, Cornell Lab of Ornithology and Outdoor Photography Canada, as well as various non-profit venues including bird atlases, ebirdr.com and educational outreach programs. I am also a contributing photographer to BirdWatching. More publication is always in the works.
In addition, I have won numerous contests, awards and other honours on various photography forums. Click here to view an interview I did for DeviantArt, which has additional background information
