Retired engineer and intellectual property specialist residing in Washington State about 15 miles south of Olympia. We’re located in an old glacial outwash prairie with a wooded area behind us.
I do mostly bird and flower photography with occasional forays into other subject matter. I’ve set up a permanent blind in a small copse of Douglas Fir on our property, so I get a fair number of woodland birds as well as the prairie species. Much of my photography is done on the property.
My go-to equipment for bird and wildlife photography is a Canon EOS 7D Mark II with a Sigma 150-600 mm Contemporary lens. For tripod shots, I use a RRS tripod and ball head with a Wimberley Sidekick. For macro and floral images, I usually use a Canon EOS 5D Mark III with a Canon 180 mm f3.5 macro lens, though I also like my Canon 300 mm f/4 lens for floral images.
