I am a published professional photographer specializing in landscape, garden and horticultural photography. My skills range from intimate floral macrophotography to grand landscapes. I have a complete "digital darkroom" for creating, enhancing and manipulating digital photos, and I would enjoy sharing what I know with anyone who wants to learn.
I have several local and regional commercial clients, numerous portrait clients, newsletters, and several regional and national magazines among my clients.
We can never know all there is to know and discover about nature, so our subject matter unfolds anew every day, in every scene, in every subject. That is the joy of nature photography - discovering and learning anew every day.
While I am constantly striving to perfect my craft, my greater desire is to understand my subject so that I may portray it in a way that will reveal its truth to others. That, to me, is the real challenge of photography.
Wind swept snowy mountain peaks at sunset make for awesome landscape photos, but most of us will never see them in person. Yet, we all have inspiring scenes to capture in our own back yards. The key is in seeing them with fresh eyes.
The latest camera with all of its buttons and features will not make you a better photographer. Seeing more clearly and defining what you want to say about your subject will make you a better photographer.

Hello, Steve - A better method would be to upload your photos to Flickr (www.flickr.com), dotphoto.com, exposuremanager.com or something similar; then send her a link. You should have an "online presence"
Hi, Sandy - Thanks for the question. Close-up or macro photography has its own challenges, as you are experiencing. You did not list the exact models of cameras you are using now, but I suspect that neither
Hi, Mike - The short answer is that it's a $450 gamble. If the camera never breaks you saved $450. If the shutter goes out after 5000 exposures, you're out $1100. I can't make that decision for you.
Hi, Abbey - You should have no problems getting good prints processed from your disposable camera unless the camera has been stored in conditions bad for film. That would include hot or humid locations
Hello, Darrel - Iím on a Mac too and have a Canon 5D, so Iím intimately familiar with your situation. A RAW file, as you probably know, is the unprocessed file created when you take a picture in RAW mode
