After years of producing graphic arts materials for others, I turned to photography to produce art work on my own terms. The availability of the digital darkroom and high quality color printing introduced me to many new and exciting possibilities in photography. My attention soon turned to wildlife due to my love and appreciation of nature. I find wildlife photography to be a great challenge both technically and artistically. There is nothing like the exhilaration of capturing an American Bald Eagle just as it takes a fish from the Mississippi or the first movements of the wings of a Hummingbird as he begins to take flight.
The Midwest offers a unique and under-appreciated wildlife environment. I discovered this by viewing it through the perspective of the camera’s lens. Our natural environment is often taken for granted and even abused when people do not understand the importance of their local ecosystem. In sharing this unique perspective through my photography I hope that I can help people to appreciate and preserve the natural beauty of the American Midwest.
I was so mesmerized by the photographs of the bald headed eagle. They are simply the amazing in flight and action filled photograph I have seen of eagles. The timing, exposure, angle and everything is so fabulous.
I arrived on your site via Nikonians. All your images are superb. Superb in both composition and post processing. That female woodduck and her reflection is almost three dimensional. Your eagle and sandhill cranes photos are outstanding. Thank you for sharing.
See you back on the Nikonians.
Thank you for sharing these images, the Bald Eagles images are some of the best captures I have seen. Thank you for being part of the Nikonians support. Arizona has is share of outdoor life and after viewing your images it make me want to capture so much more.

Hi Dave, It was nice to meet you last weekend in the Green Island Wetlands. You present some wonderful images on your website. Very inspiring!
Awesome Bald Eagle shots...I am moving back to Tulsa OK and I believe they have some eagles in the Keystone lake area and I am now inspired to go and take pics myself.
