Hey fella!

I often coax animals into looking at the camera. I’m respectful but not too shy. I’ve always had a strong affinity for creatures, though not especially interested in holding frogs, petting snakes or finding myself in a gorilla’s cage – I prefer to admire them from a comfortable distance. Typically, I’m hiding behind my zoom lens and studying behaviors, moving around to get different backdrops and stretching my patience. It’s fun to me and a great way to spend time outdoors. I’m never bored.

Tips & Advice

Whether in a zoo, in a field or at an aquarium, keep in mind:

  • Respect Your Surroundings
  • Have Appropriate Gear
