A Naturalist with a Camera

I've never considered myself a professional photographer, but I have used cameras and taken photographs for all of my adult life. It's a critical tool for a biologist, and an essential layer to every professional activity that I have engaged in through my career.

This photography blog will be updated regularly as I dig through and update my image archives from their many original film and electronic formats. I am also utilizing modern digital cameras in my current projects and nature explorations. Newly processed collections will be posted at the top, and I'm working towards incorporating a visual timeline tool to indicate when, where and how any particular image collection was created.
