I am a photodocumentarist.

I rarely start out to capture a preconceived image through a pre-planned setup. I try to see & grab an image that defines a moment / captures an essence / shows the beauty / tells a story (even if I'm the only one who knows what that story is).

Sometimes though I get hooked on a topic/subject & pound away until I get images that allows me to let go & move on.

I hope you see something here that excites or moves you. Thanks for stopping by & for your views & com

Q: I am really into my wildlife photography but cannot afford a super zoom lens, I have a 300mm and am considering a teleconvertor. Has anybody had a experience with these and would you recommend them?

A: Do you know?
