I do mostly Nature photography.......nothing serious, just a Hobby.

I still have all of my Olympus equipment.....but I have started migrating over to the Dark Side (Nikon). My fave combo at the moment is my D5100 and the Nikkor 300mm f4.

    "Dear GWburke (aka Gary)

    You are such a great person. Hmm that's a broad statement. But no, you don't understand that until you think about it. I mean it times 100. There is a different between saying "you are a great person" and it meaning that lonely, broad statement... or I myself saying it to you, it's much stronger and better. So yes, Gary, you're one of a kind :)
    And I love your photos. I love how you like to capture nature shots and make them look so captivating. It shows you're probably an animal person, which is really good :) Because I am too haha.
    But anyways, you're very kind...always faving, commenting, and saying good things about my work and making me feel good about my stuff :)

    You deserve this! :)

    "Gary ...I am speechless when it comes to describing your photographic skills and range.
    Me, speechless LOL!!
    You are an ARTIST I have no doubt about it. I know when Gary posts his work that every image is going to be a pure delight. His photographs always leave me smiling from ear to ear.
    I am completely awe struck by his macro views of flying bees, eight legged creatures, butterflies and of course all of those gorgeous flowers and drop shots ~ PERFECTION!
    Gary is a man with a deep inner soul. This can be immediately witnessed by each and every moment he has turned his lens to show us a heartfelt and emotion packed scene from our Nations Capital. The war monuments honoring our soldiers memories are the ones that really tug at my heart strings. I have never seen a more touching photograph than the one of (Arlington National Cemetary) commemorating Memorial Day 2009!
    Gary is also an OUTSTANDING bird photgographer. He is leaps and bounds above anything I have yet to capture. His shots are so impressive and impeccable. The inflight shots are stunning, the stop action jawdropping and his many shots of birds with their reflections cannot be matched!
    SEE FOR YOURSELF when you visit his stream!

    Gary you are my INSPIRATION!!!

    On a personal note I want to THANK YOU Gary, for becoming a true & trusted friend to me. What could I do without the *Cool Breezes* you send my way! To my newly discovered detassling cohort ~ You are a GEM....

    "Gary is a sweet & wonderful Flickr friend. He knows how in this earth-the details of nature beauty can affect our feelings. Gary captures them wonderfully and shared them with us through his precious photo stream.

    I am blessed to know you, Gary. Though It’s been awhile, I’m glad to find you back. Your support is one of the valuable thing I gain everyday. Thank you so much, my dear friend."

    "I was (and am) still intimidated by my Uncle Gary's passion for photography (Among others such as the Falcons). Right now I'm reminising on that one week a few years back, during the summer, when he guided me to the splendid, eternal vortex of a new, learning talent. It only took a few words to have my mind set. And, even though my uncle isn't much of a talker he expresses his passions, and thoughts through his beautiful photostream that has become his source of communication to everyone around the world, and an inspiration to us all. Let me tell you- it is the most mind-blowing work I've ever been so graciously to glance through. I owe it to him. =)

    Your Always Adoring Niece,

    "Even I´m long way off to be a Pro, right now first starting up in more serious photography, I would like to suggest: Have a look to gwburke2001 pictures!
    For me it is nearly not to express with words how fascinated I am from this work.
    The variety of the motives (butterflies, flowers, the water drops), the creativity... simply amazing.
    The quality of the shots, what to say about except... beautiful!
    Hopefully one time I will be also able to have that view for the motives and the opportunities as well as the technical skill to transfer all that into a picture.
    gwburke2001, thanks a lot for sharing that great work with us!" Regards Digital Pro"

    "It was Gary's Waterfall Photos that 1st caught my eye. This I found while on vacation. At the time I had barely any friends on flickr. He was so friendly and fun to talk to; always making me laugh. Like his Photography always new and beautiful quality; he is there for you when you need him most; when others may let you down. Beauty can be dangerous; like where he lives there is so much nature beauty to see and even through all the types of weather he goes out and shows us his world of beauty. I sincerely hope to see all this in person some day and meet Gary.
    ~I love you "G".~"

    "Gary is one of the sweetest friends a person can have on Flickr.
    Gary's work is outstanding. In my view he is one of the best photographers on Flickr. He has an amazing eye for beauty, he makes art from the simplest things. He never ceases to amaze me with what he uploads on his stream. From stunning macro droplets to football games, he is a master!!

    As far as a flickr friend goes he is top-notch. He is one of the most kindest generous people I have ever known on Flickr. I am sure no matter what type of photography you prefer there is something here for you at Gary's stream.

    Hugs to you my dear friend Gary and thanks for all of your kindness and support."

    "Well...this testimonial is certainly overdue. Gary has been a longtime contact and friend on Flickr. His work is amazing, his comments are sincere, his love for his country and our flag is unfailing. I hope someday to make a trip to NC to shoot photos with him. He inspires me to look closer, to capture the details.

    Thanks, Gary, for being such a great friend. You're one of the best!

    "Gary, to me, is the nature king! Sometimes I think of him as the "Bug Guy"! In any case his macro shots are wonderful, drawing you into a miniature world! His floral and bird shots are also superb. Whatever subject he turns his camera to is bound to be interesting!
    He is also one of my first and most faihtful Flickr friends. Always stopping by daily with positive comments. He is always ready to give great advice when asked! He is an outstanding photographer and friend. Visit his photostream and you won't be disappointed. It's a pleasure to view! He is a treasure!"

    "I am amazed with the work Gary produces. His nature work is among the best I have seen anywhere. If you just look though his photostream I am sure you will find many that you would hang in your own home. Gary and I have been friends on Flickr for a few months and not only does he have good things to say about your work but also inspires me to do better with mine. I had the pleasure of meeting Gary a while back when I was on vacation on the Outer Banks. Gary has a great eye and points out things that you might not see your self. I am very glad I was able to meet this man in person and learn a few thing when I did."

He has some of the most amazing and beautiful nature shots that any nature photographer would love to have in their collection. You won't find anything average in this guys collection!"
