Looks like home.  We have three feeders like these but one is of the newer design with a large opening on the bottom for easier cleaning and filling.  We figure we are on about our sixth generation of birds and have been feeding them for at least 40 years.  Sometimes they stay year-round.  Others they come and go in a mass.  I don't think we have this many at one time ... but close.  Feisty little critters.  The ones that frequent the back yard will let me get to close-focus distance on lenses without spooking.  They will readily feed from hand.  The amazing thing: they like water and will "take a shower" in a hose mist and REALLY AMAZING ... on rare occasions they will "light" on a hose stream and ride it to fly back and repeat the trick.  Really.

Helping you share the beauty of life with the world!
Introduction

Originally from Pennsylvania, I moved to San Diego while serving 5 years in the U.S. Navy. It was a trip to the Grand Canyon that sparked what would be a career in photography. Upon seeing the magnificent view, I thought to myself "I want to share this scene with everyone that can't be here themselves." A couple of weeks later I bought my first dSLR camera, and my journey in photography began.


Photography has been a powerful tool in helping me see life for its beauty. I see our workshops as a chance to help others see the beauty in life and to share it with the world. It's a thrill for me to see the excitement in someone's face when they've taken a great image.

For me, photography is more than just an art form. It is an extension of my inner, spiritual journey. A practice of seeing the world for more than the physical forms that surround us. To experience and feel the energy that connects us all. When I shoot, it comes from a place of feeling. Of experiencing the scene deep inside my soul.

I don't have a story to tell, a message for my viewers, or a predetermined pattern for drawing you in. Instead, I have captured a moment that has permeated my being and I attempt to transfer that energy to my audience. Not to gain acclaim or fame, but because the world is more beautiful when you learn to feel the energy of life.
