Critiques


The composition is very pleasing to the eye. The focus is a little soft. I know from experience that it's difficult to capture wildlife...

Activity


It occurred to me that I'd submit more of my photos if I wasn't so hell-bent on doing it chronologically from the archives. For one thing it's incredibly time-consuming doing it that way. So I did up a batch of year-specific signatures for the templates and now I have no excuse not to post my favourite shots from recent shoots. Here's hoping you'll see photos from me more regularly from now on!

Artist | Hobbyist | Photography
Canada
I'm a nature photographer from B.C., Canada. I spend a lot of my spare time in search of wildlife, plant life, and interesting outdoor scenes. I also have an interest in entropy, so you may see the odd shot of burnt-out old cars and industrial junk in my gallery.

I welcome comments, and I certainly welcome favorites and watches. Desktop-sized versions of my deviations are free to download, and I offer larger sizes as prints. Please respect a starving artist's copyright! :)

Hi! Thanks for the kind words. My camera is a Nikon D7000. I have three lenses for it so far: kit 18-55mm, 55-300mm zoom, and a 40mm macro. Nearly everything I've posted here so far has been taken with the 55-300mm.
