About Me

Hi, thank you for coming to explore my photographic art!

Join me on my journey to improve my photography and to share the beauty of this world we are privileged to be a part of!  In short, I want to bring nature to you!  

I will be sharing my photography experiences as I visit new places, learn to see old places in a new light, learn and practice new photography and post-processing skills, and apply techniques I have learned over the years as an amateur photographer.   

I started learning photography in high school over 40 years ago when my father first got me interested in photography.  I got an Canon film camera and set up my own darkroom in our basement. I took a break from photography during college and picked up again once I graduated and got a full time job working in the United States intelligence community where I analyzed satellite images.  

I got my first digital camera around 2005 and have been an avid photographer ever since.  I  photographing all aspects of nature - landscapes, birds, plants, animals, etc.. I love seeing and taking pictures of the wonders of what our world has to offer - Beautiful landscapes, nature in action, close ups of flowers, and more.  

I hope you enjoy my photographs and blog.  Please leave me comments and let me know what you love. 

Thanks, Chuck
