Winter Photography Workshop at Mass Audubon

I will be presenting my popular winter photography workshop at the North River Sanctuary of the Massachusetts Audubon Society in Marshfield, MA on November 17, from 1-3PM.   We will discuss a variety of important tips and techniques to help take your winter photography to the next level.   Among other things, we will discuss winter clothing, how to make great images of snow and how to keep your camera healthy during a harsh winter storm.   Most importantly, we will learn how to keep our hands and fingers from becoming frozen blocks of ice:)  I will use a series of my favorite winter images to illustrate our discussions.   At the end of our session we will take a short walk on the North River Sanctuary property to practice our newly learned techniques.

The fee for this session is $20 for Audubon members and $25 for non-members.   All levels of photographers are welcome.   Please call to register 781 837 9400.   For more info, please visit the following link:

Thank You!!

Thank You!

I would like to thank everyone who has helped me with "The Year of the Snowy Owl" exhibit.   This exhibit has taken years of study, months in the field, and numerous hours of planning and preparation.   I most certainly would not have been able to do this by myself.

I fear that I will forget someone when I name names, but these people have been wonderful and supportive, each in their own way.    First, my dad (Ranger Bob) for inspiring me with a love of nature.    My mom for making me do multiplication table flash cards, penmanship, tying my shoes and algebra.   She taught me the persistence and dedication needed to succeed.  

Thank you to Mark Wilson for sharing his art and inspiration.  To John Galluzzo for being incredibly supportive and for his humor keeping things light.   Sue MacCallum and all of the Audubon staff and volunteers have been fantastic to work with.    Thank you to the cookie brigade, Ellen Adams, Veronica O’Neil and Michelle and Anthony Galluzzo.

To all of the photographers and birders who have accompanied me on the long walks and given me updates on the latest sightings, especially Hans Zimmern.    Thank you to all of those who have helped me get the word out: Jane Lopes, Amy Davies, Karen Blair, Lisa Cuchara, Jacqui Mysliwiec, Carol Smith and Tim Kelley. Thank you to everyone who reads my blog, attends my workshops and purchases my prints. Thank you to all of the friends I have made along the way.

Thank you most of all to my wonderful wife Brenda. She is incredibly supportive and patient. Without her, I don’t know where I would be. Brenda makes everything more beautiful!
