The hummingbird whisperer

I recently retired following a 30+ year career in psychology. Lots of unscheduled free time and not having to bother with schedules have been nice changes and I now have time to wander around taking pictures, both  close to home in the Pacific Northwest  and internationally.

My favorite photo subjects are birds, wildlife, candid shots of kids and landscapes.  My favorite shooting destinations are Ecuador, where most of the hummingbird pictures were taken, and the Oregon, Washington and British Columbia coastlines and the Columbia River.

I've been interested in photography since buying a Canon AE-1 35mm in 1978 but making a living and raising kids took priority for lots of years. I got back into photography in 2009 when I bought a decent Nikon outfit and I currently use Nikon D90 and D600 bodies, Nikon lenses and flash, and  "Big Bertha," a Sigma 150 - 500 mm, for birds.

Please feel free to get in touch to ask questions, etc. My email (yes, I know I'm a technological dinosaur) is You can order a wide variety of products directly through the website including enlargements, cloth ing and items like luggage tags and coffee mugs with  your favorite images.

I also highly recommend Trogon Tours ( Nate Chappell, the owner is an excellent birder / bird  photographer as well as a patient and knowledgeable teacher. I always come home with lots of new skills and excellent images. I was amazed when I looked at m y images from my first Ecuador trip with him and found myself asking the question lots of others pose. "YOU took  this?!" I really like being able to say, 

"I sure did!"

I hope you enjoy my images.
