I'm a resident of the beautiful state of Colorado. I picked up photography a few years ago with a Canon 450D, and have loved it ever since. I don't get nearly as much time to spend with a lens as I would prefer, and am hoping to change that in the coming years. My passion lies with nature photography of all forms, however particularly with bird and wildlife photography, followed by landscapes and astrophotography. As my primary job consumes most of my time, I have spent a considerable amount of time photographing the only subject most often available to me when I have the chance to photograph something: the moon. While I generally prefer photographing birds, its amazing how much detail, depth, and character our solo satellite has, and it never seems to bore as a subject.
