I am a Burlington, Ontario-based outdoor photographer, political blogger and a wannabe naturalist… hakuna matata.

My favourite photography subjects are birds, however, I do have an interest in other areas of nature photography, including landscapes. My images have twice been selected to represent the featured Bird of the Week by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s website, All About Birds.

I shoot with a Nikon D300 digital SLR and any of Nikkor 10-24mm zoom, Nikkor 70-200mm VR f/2.8 zoom or a Nikkor 300mm f/2.8 prime. For distant birds, I sometimes use a teleconverter: Kenko Teleplus Pro 300 1.4x, Nikon 1.7x TC-17E II or Nikon 2x TC-20E III. And, for low-light situations, I use a 50mm f/1.8 prime. My backup is a Nikon D50 DSLR with an 18-200mm VR zoom.

For printing snapshots I use a 4×6″ Canon Selphy and for large prints, I use an Epson R1800.

I shoot in RAW format and process/catalog my images in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom on a dual-display Windows 7 PC. For creative work I use Adobe Photoshop CS5.
