has been a member since May 2008 and goes by blimes.

I am finishing up a PhD in political science from the University of Colorado. I currently live in Orem, Utah.

I shoot mostly color nature photographs, but looking through the submissions on this site, I have been working to branch out. I appreciate all the great feedback and support I have received from JPG members, and I look forward to seeing more of your work.

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?
