I love the outdoors, canoeing and photography. Trying to photograph aircraft and automobiles first captured my interest in photography, but I never had the equipment to take decent photos of aircraft until February of 2010. I canoed for years before I started taking my camera with me and began taking the occasional photo of a bird or alligator. It wasn't until 2009 that I started in earnest to try to get better shots that I really began concentrating on the wildlife aspect of photography. Hopefully I'll learn more about approaching the animals on the bayou. I also enjoy Hawaii which offers endless opportunities to take great shots. My favorite place is Haleakala on Maui. Hopefully I'll have good weather when I return there.
If you are interested in checking out the most interesting photos in my Photostream please visit the link below.
I at one time had a blend of aircraft and wildlife photos together on this site but have decided to set up an independent Flickr location that is dedicated strictly to aircraft! The new Flickr site is called On the Wing and will have all of the latest aircraft photos that I have taken located there! You will also find a few automobiles mixed in with the aircraft photos! If you have some time and are interested in aircraft please drop by the new location listed below!
Feel free to check out my website below for a bit of additional information but be advised that it will direct you back here to view all of my photos! Welcome and enjoy the view!!
The new Nikon gear has been extremely impressive and only wish that I had made the change years ago! I am going to put in a plug for B&H Photo and Video Equipment! They have always treated me well and are always honest and reputable!
I am now the proud owner of two Nikon D7100 bodies and will attempt to learn the intricate details and all of the options available in this marvelous piece of equipment! I went with two D7100s in order to keep from carrying dissimilar batteries and chargers. Below you’ll find a list of all of the equipment! I kept my old Sony A700 specifically for sunrise and sunset scenes as it has always given me some wonderful tones and has some adjustability that other DSLRs do not offer! I also kept the Panasonic DMC-FZ200 as a light portable P&S camera for quick and dirty work.
Nikon D7100 2 bodies
Nikkor 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6 ED VR
Nikkor 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6 G
Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 EX DC
Sony A700 body
DT Carl Zeiss 16-80mm f3.5-4.5
I want to also add that I shoot strictly jpeg format and have no experience with RAW! I use Corel PaintShop Pro X8 for my photo editing! If you have any questions feel free to contact me any time!
How long can it possibly take to type nice capture or nice details on that bird! REALLY???? Even if I type with one finger it doesn't take longer than a minute! Do I have a minute for a friend??? Geez!!!! I hope so! If you just want to play the ol' FAV game I'm not going to be your best choice for a contact! And yes they are still contacts to me and it doesn't matter what Flickr calls them!
SO....if you are interested in being a contact or a friend read on! I guess that I can be really cold and say that if you want to play games then move on! Facebook should be your kind of place!

"My dear Jerome is one a kind, he has always stuck by me through thick and thin, even when i have been ill he has flickrmailed me to see how i am, he is a total diamond and someone i am proud to call part of my Family on Flickr.
As for his photography, it is outstanding, his photos are out of this world and so professional, the close ups of his birds, Alligators and anything else he can capture as he drifts down the river are amazing, the detail is just out of this world and its a true privilege to hop past his stream and see what beauty he has to show us from his part of the world.
Thank you Jerome for being a part of my life and for your beautiful photos, you are really a wonderful, kind, caring and talented person, and someone i think a lot of, always your friend and family Caz xo"

"Jerome is a great Flickr member and has an awesome photostream!!! He has many wonderful images of birds and scenic shots!!!! He spends many hours every year searching the bayous and rivers for cool images to share with Flickr. Please take a while and browse through his pics and I am sure you will enjoy your time at his site. I'm also sure that he will have many more great images to share with us in the future too!!! :-)
Thanks for sharing you images, visits and comments, Jerome, they are greatly appreciated!!!
