Wonders Of Nature Photography

Pittsburgh, PA


The last 20 or 30 years I have acquired experiences in the field of microfilming which some of you may recognize as a form of photography.  It has only been since 2002 that I began to take an interest in nature photography.

In reality, I believe god had a hand in my pursuing nature photography.  Nature has always been my interest.

As time went on learning about photography and its finer points came from reading, and instruction from a few photographer friends. This lead me to learning camera techniques and scene composition.

Entering shows for prizes is not my goal but do appreciate any that I have received.  My work is exhibited so others can share in god's creations.  I am convinced it takes someone greater than I to have created the simplest of plants to the greatness of earth and our universe.

The most important point that everyone that looks at my work needs to know is that most of my original photographs are taken in their natural setting.  My work is generally not staged in any way.  On occasion, I will take an individual photograph and apply an artistic touch to try and create an interesting piece of work.

In the past few years, I have hiked through the natural areas of Prescott, AZ., Hilton Head Island, South Carolina shores, and the area of Sarasota, FL.  Ten days were spent photographing various areas of the National Parks through Utah, Montana, Wyoming, N. Dakota, and S. Dakota. During the 2018 year, another trip is planned in the area of Sarasota, Florida. In addition, a trip is planned in the Fall of 2018 to Alaska. The goal is to add interesting and exciting photos to my portfolio.

In my home area of Western Pennsylvania, I have and continue to hike through the Pennsylvania Natural areas in the Laurel Highlands. Along the way, every opportunity is taken to photograph landscapes, wildflowers, and wildlife.

Pursuing water falls throughout the Tr-State area is a continued goal.  The latest being the 23 water falls in the Ricketts Glen State Park, Eastern Pennsylvania, and the Slippery Rock Gorge in W. Pennsylvania.

My recent exhibitions included the photographic history of Ricketts Glen and an upcoming show of the history of Slippery Rock Gorge. Both created by the glacier that covered Pennsylvania.

In addition to general Nature Photography, I am moving into a new area called macro photography emphasizing light. The results will be an up close and personal viewing of nature.
