been there, shot that | About
My previous profession and vacations, and now my photography career, have brought me to locales  throughout the U.S., Europe, Asia, and Africa, as well as the Arctic and Antarctic regions. I've taken the opportunities afforded by this travel to shoot images throughout the world. I emphasize bird photography, but other animals in exotic locations also have attracted my interest. I am attracted to patterns, both in nature and in human creations, hence my fondness for modern architecture. I also am fascinated by the beautiful presentations crafted by top-tier chefs around the world, hence the recent additional of the "Been There, Ate That" section to this site.

I employed Canon equipment for all of the images displayed here. Most of the animal and landscape images were captured using Canon 1-series professional bodies and L-series lenses. I recently acquired a Canon 5Ds R body, to take advantage of its 50 MP sensor, which has proved very valuable in a number of settings. A few images of architecture (and all of the food shots) were created using a succession of Canon point and shoot cameras, all of which I use for RAW capture.
