These shots were taken shortly after sunrise, in my friends backyard in Cleveland, Ohio. This is Tom and Ginny’s backyard and it is beautiful. They live on the edge of a park and frequently have multiple deer wander through all year. The deer feel quite comfortable and weren’t scared off as I approached. They just watched me closely as I set up my shots and got to work.

I often post shots of wildlife from my travels abroad. To get these shots, there is most often a car, boat, plane ride, or long hike involved. This was one of the easiest treks I had to make to get great images. I woke up, walked out the back door and saw multiple deer hanging out. I am often reminded that you always don’t have to cross an ocean or continent to shoot. Sometimes all you have to do, is walk out your back door.

The Red Rocks of Sedona

This was taken during one, of many hikes through the red rocks of Sedona, Arizona. I was out hiking with my father, when I noticed this one cloud in the sky hovering over the ridge.

Minding a Fire

Adam watching the fire at DWPPhotography has taken me down many different paths, and this has been one of my favorite journeys as a photographer. I was asked to document fire behavior, and shoot fire in different habitats. To be able to shoot in a burning landscape, you have to learn how to burn that landscape. I earned my “RED CARD”, trained as a wild land firefighter, then began working with The Nature Conservancy’s…

A Frog in the Jungle at Night

A Frog in the Jungle at Night

Tadpole becoming a frogWe had decided to do a night hike in the Amazon Jungle. Our excellent guide, Alfredo Dosantos Santillán, led us to a high and dry area where we could easily walk and look for night life. On this particular hike, we had decided not to take our students with us. Several of our students had expressed great concern over the size and quantity of insects. Since we were looking for spiders, snakes, and…

These images are from the Apalachicola Bluffs and Ravines preserve. This preserve is owned and managed by The Nature Conservancy in Florida’s panhandle. I was on assignment shooting for several days for TNC, and had a great time. I am often accompanied by preserve scientists, land managers and biologists. Having these knowledgeable people leading the way and knowing the landscape is priceless. I always like to do my homework before an assignment, but having somebody that knows where you need to be, sure makes a shoot go smoothly. The plan was to capture the many different habitats that encompass the preserve. These images show longleaf pine/wiregrass uplands, steephead ravines, streams, sandhill habitat, and a seepage stream. This is a truly beautiful area of Florida, and if you get a chance, stop by and take a hike!

I love these old castle stairways and passages. They have seen so much time and use. The stone has been smoothed over by the touch of millions of hands over time. Stone has been cut, repaired, replaced and “improved”. Kings, Queens, servants, soldiers and tourists have wandered these passages.  The castle as a whole is an impressive edifice, but these areas speak of an intimacy that was shared in passing and of clandestine meetings.

All of these shots were taken with my 17mm wide angle lens. I wasn’t allowed to use a tripod, so I braced myself against the walls as best I could, held my breath and pressed the shutter release. One of my favorite discoveries during the day, was the change, play and color of light that came streaming through the windows. The geometry, direction of light, shadows and architecture is just wonderful.

Street Musicians in Amsterdam

I was strolling through the flower market in Amsterdam when I first heard these two. They were playing some folksy ballad to appeal to the tourists milling about.

A Kangaroo and her Joey

A Kangaroo and her Joey

A Kangaroo & Joey

A Kangaroo & JoeyThis shot was taken in a sweet little zoo, near Sydney, Australia. These guys are quite docile, so you are allowed to walk right into their habitat and hang with them. Some of my students were even walking right up to them and petting these friendly beasts. While the students were petting a few “roos” around the corner, I came upon these three hanging out by themselves.  The Joey was quite…

Our Cruise Ship on The Doubtful Sound

The Doubtful Sound, New Zealand

Our cruise ship on the Doubtful Sound, New Zealand.

This was our cruise ship we spent a night and a day on in The Doubtful Sound. The sun was setting and I had a last chance to take a kayak out to explore the fjord. As I was traversing the bay I looked back and saw this shot. Every line seemed to point at the cruise ship, from my vantage point. The ship also seemed quite small from this distance.…

Niguliste Museum (St. Nicholas' Church)

Niguliste Museum (St. Nicholas' Church)This is the Niguliste Museum, otherwise known as St. Nicholas’ Church in Tallinn Estonia. I came upon this scene quite by accident. My students and me were just deposited in the old city center, to begin our photographic tour, when one of them twisted their ankle in a hole in the cobble stone street. I ended up taking him to the hospital to get taken care of and leaving my students with my most…
