"Nature is amazing"

In September of 2017, I decided to pic​k up a decent camera for the first time in my life. I was always interested in photography and admired the work of many others. I always had point and click cameras I snuck into concerts and took random pictures with but had never owned a "real" camera.


So my first camera was just a Nikon P900 purchased for the "Super Zoom" features and I went crazy taking pictures of the moon and other far away objects. It was incredible, I learned something every day, just trying to take better pictures each time out. From there I started to gain interest in birds and fell in love with the first Osprey nest I came across. I would stop by it everyday, trying to get every angle I could. Sometimes just sitting there for hours hoping for something cool to happen. I watched them diving into water to bring out a fish to take back to the nest and feed their young. I saw their babies learn to flap their wings, hover above the nest and take their first flights. It was amazing to sit and watch this stuff for the first time in my life. And to be able to take photos of this was so exciting. And then came the Snowy Owl. It was New Year's Day  2018 when I saw my first Snowy. At that point I became obsessed.  I met so many great people and made a lot of new friends as we camped out at West Dennis Beach just hoping to catch it flying or doing something "different".  Although most of my shots that winter were just portraits, I lucked out a few times with some decent flight shots. While the P900 was fantastic for still shots and spying on these beautiful birds without disturbing them, shots of them in flight were very difficult, the lighting needed to be perfect as there weren't very in depth settings on this camera and I'm sure my lack of experience wasn't helping.  I needed something better though.


In May of 2018, I picked up a Nikon D7200 and added a couple lenses. My main "birding" lens is currently a Tamron 150-600 G2 telephoto lens. I'm extremely happy with this lens and it's really all I use nowadays.


In March of 2019, I decided the D7200 was no longer quite good enough so I picked up the D850. This full frame camera is amazing and with the 45 megapixels, those far away shots can now be cropped and still come out with a very large photo. The detail this can pick up off those far away shots still blows my mind almost a year later.


I hope you enjoy my photos as much as I've enjoyed taking them.
