I am a freelance nature photographer and writer specializing in birds. I taught elementary school in New York City for twenty-three years, and for eight years I conducted the shorebird survey at the Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge for The International Shorebird Surveys, Manomet, MA. Two of my images — out of 19,000 entries — were awarded prizes in the 1997 BG plc Wildlife Photographer of the Year Competition, and another was similarly honored in the 2000 contest. In April 1995, I became a Canon contract photographer, part of their “Explorers of Light” program
Sixty-four of my images were featured in the exhibit On a Wing and a Prayer; The Migratory Birds of North America, which opened in April 2001. More than 11,000 of my photographs have been published in American Birds, Audubon, Birding, Birder’s World, Bird Watcher’s Digest, Florida Wildlife and Nature, Living Bird, National Geographic, Natural History, Nature Photographer, Outdoor Photographer, PHOTOgraphic, Ranger Rick, Wildbird, and other magazines, as well as in hundreds of books and calendars. More than 100 of my photo-illustrated feature articles have appeared in a wide variety of publications worldwide. I am also a lecturer, and have presented more than 250 slide programs during the past 15 years. I now photograph, travel, speak, and teach extensively in North America.
