I've retired from a rewarding aerospace engineering career and now devote more time to my hobby and passion of more than 35 years: nature photography. I am an active member of the Central Maryland Photographers Guild
and presently serve as its Director.
My interest for many years has been close-up and macro photography; especially images of flowers that strive to capture their form, texture, and color. Landscapes are another favorite subject. I've since expanded my interests to bird photography: especially birds-in-flight. The mid-Atlantic region provides nature photographers many venues and opportunities throughout the year to witness and photograph magnificent displays and behaviors: Bald Eagles and Ospreys fishing in the rivers and creeks of the Delmarva watershed; thousands of overwintering Snow Geese explosively lifting-off the marsh at dusk; or a solitary Great Blue Heron that silently and patiently stalks its prey in shallow wetlands.
Diana, my wife and photography partner, imports, catalogs, and post processes our photographs. She is self-taught. She initially developed her skills and honed her post processing techniques years ago using Photoshop CS3 to repair and restore vintage 35mm slides and prints. Diana is proficient with Adobe Lightroom (v5) and Photoshop (CS6). She has since expanded her knowledge and use of specialized plug-in applications from Nik/Google (Nik Collection by Google
), OnOne Software (Perfect Photo Suite 7
), and Topaz Labs
(several product apps). Diana is a member of the National Association of Photoshop Professionals (NAPP
