Hello everyone! It's been a LONG time but finally I have updated with some new photos. Please do like, comment, and spread the news as I would love more exposure. I get asked a lot if my photos can be used for reference. Surely you can, just so long as I get credit for my photo. Please include a link to it if you post the art to DA. My gear has changed, I had to sell my older gear *sigh* then was able to get new gear but I'm only using a Rebel T6 right now. Very soon I will get back to probably 60D or 70D. I'm also still practicing so tips and constructive crit are always welcome.  My style and goal is animal portraits. I do not use Phot

Thanks!
Thanks for all the birthday wishes I turned 40! Yikes! I know I’ve been sparse but the page is not dead...I’ve just been too busy to spend much time here. The Fall is coming though which is a great time for zoo photos, cooler weather is better for the animals and the photographer! I want to get a pro lens but it is taking a long time. Someday!

Vacation photos and new gear!
Hello to all of my watchers...I FINALLY have some new photos for you, taken on all new gear!  That's right I have traded all of my Canon gear and switched to Pentax!  Why? I don't know, it seems to me I could never quite master the Canon so I decided to try something new entirely. I heard good things about Pentax and so I made the decision to try all new gear and see if that improved anything. Well I guess you will have to be the judge of that!  I LOVE the 55-200mm lens I use now for the zoo shots, because it's so sharp!  Also this lens is spot on with the focus making my task so much more enjoyable and rewarding. I still have a lot of lear

Photo Journal- New Year's Eve at Longwood Gardens
Hey everybody!  I decided to do something a little different and make a journal about a recent and amazing trip to Longwood Gardens!  This incredible place has a fascinating history and is located in Pennsylvania.  If you are anywhere near this place or want to make it a day trip, I'm telling you it is quite worth it. The Conservatory alone is worth the trip!  Anyway, I went here for the first time during their Christmas decorations and WOW, was I ever impressed.  And since they change it up every year, I am definitely going to try and make it a yearly thing from now on!  I also go at least one other time in the year for Spring...the carpets

Merry Christmas, Happy new year
I hope you all had a great holiday!  What are some 2017 goals you have? Mine is to get healthier (an ongoing struggle...), and continue to improve my photography! I hope you all will enjoy some new ones I put up and there is more to come in the near future.  :) On a side note, I could use your prayers.  I just haven't been feeling well at all the past several weeks after doing pretty well for quite some time.  I can still get to work and function, but I am frustrated to be struggling to maintain a decent level of well-being after what I've been through and how many long years I have fought. Thank you all in advance :)
