Your Bio

Thanks for looking at my galleries.

Photography has been a part of my life since I was fourteen years old. It went from hobby to sideline (product) to profession (medical) to hobby again. I find that I enjoy it a whole lot more when I'm not dependent on it for a mortgage payment. It is also a great form of therapy for me to help decompress from a very stressful job in the operating room.
Birds have become my favorite subjects; especially hummingbirds. The peace of being outside and observing and listening to them is balanced by the challenge of capturing a quality image of a subject that can move in any direction (at least the hummers) with lightning-quick reflexes. I am fortunate to live relatively close to some of the best hummingbird habitat in the country - the Chiricahua Mountains and Ramsey Canyon are only a few hours away, and I have resident Anna's Hummingbirds in my back yard year-round.

Feel free to leave comments and constructive criticism on anything you see here.
