Our National Parks and Wildlife Refuges offer wonderful opportunities to capture the diverse character of the land, our coasts, and the wildlife that inhabit them: the rocky Acadia coast in the northeast; the sublime Tetons, Yellowstone, and rugged Colorado Rockies out west; and the temperate rain forests and wild coasts of the Pacific Northwest. Closer to home, Columbia's local parks and lakes, the Chesapeake Bay region, and National Wildlife Refuges on the Delmarva peninsula provide littoral ecosystems for wetland birds, shorebirds, and raptors.

Diana, my wife and photography partner, catalogs and post-processes our photographs using Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop CC, and software products by Topaz Labs, ON1, and HDRsoft.

Samples of our work can be viewed in the Featured Galleries below.
