Honored to have one of my most memorable wildlife portraits in the November issue of N-Photo Magazine. On a day in which the wildlife of the world received coverage because the numbers of mammals, birds and fish declined by an average of 58% between 1970 and 2012 (source: World Wildlife Federation and the Zoological Society of London). A few of the goals I have set forth through my photography are to change the hearts and minds of those who do not care about or appreciate wildlife, educate those who are uninformed about wildlife, and to be a bridge to those who do not have the access or ability to see the wildlife of this world before it’s gone. Thank you N-Photo! Simply the best magazine dedicated to professional Nikon photographers.
Extremely stoked to add the Nikon 800mm FL ED VR to my camera bag! I’ve attached the Really Right Stuff LCF-17 lens foot. I don’t think I’ve ever been more excited for any lens purchase. I am going to miss my 400mm f/2.8 VR gen 2, but I’ve wanted the 800mm fluorite VR lens since it was released. Having the new 400mm f/2.8 FL ED VR and the 800mm I believe would be the optimal prime solution. I am a huge fan of primes and will easily accept the focal length restraints of a prime in order to gain optimal optical quality of the highest degree. I do own and shoot zooms, but primes are where my heart is. I believe primes make you grow as a photographer more so than zooms. Looking forward to capturing and creating new art with this optical masterpiece.
