FIELD ETHICS

 

The well-being of animals I photograph takes precedence over the photo. As a general rule and to the best of my ability, I work to reduce how intrusive my presence is. To that end: I use long lenses, I don't bait or lure wild animals like owls or foxes, and I'm extra cautious about (and generally avoid) nesting/denning areas, so as not to disturb or draw attention to the location. Exceptions include situations like heron or egret rookeries not compromised by human presence.

POST-PROCESSING

 

In naturalistic or documentary photography, I make standard edits on RAW files. For fine art images and prints, I do take artistic license with effect and outcome. I'm currently (slowly) updating my catalog of images for caption consistency.

 

Gear: I use mirrorless cameras from Olympus + m.zuiko 300mm f/4.0, m.zuiko 40-150mm f/2.8, lumix 100-400mm - plus Sony RX100, + iPhone
