About Dave

I’ve always enjoyed photography, but my real passion and interest for birding and wildlife actually happened as a result of my first safari trip to Africa in 2002.

It was a “life-changing experience!”   The overwhelming emotions of that trip… the incredible natural setting, scenery, and sunsets, the abundant wildlife, the spectacular colorful birds, and the African culture and people… it all ignited a new passion inside me.

As an active Audubon Society and American Birding Association member, I enjoy the fun and the challenge of birding and photography… whether on some far away trail across the globe, or on a local weekend Audubon bird walk.

Dave lives with his wife, Barbi… in northern California just south of the San Francisco Bay in Morgan Hill, California.
 

I’m a worldwide birder who maintains a detailed lifelist of every bird species I’ve observed, which I openly share for others to view, and I’m also a bird photographer trying to get a photo of every bird on my lifelist. These are similar, yet different goals to achieve.

It’s often a real challenge to find, observe, and determine the bird species in the field, and then to also capture a decent photograph… in focus, with proper exposure, showing the field marks for ID… all before the bird flies away! Sometimes… I don’t get ANY photo. That’s birding photography!

I’ve been fortunate to have visited all seven continents… even including the hardest to get to… Antarctica. I went there to photograph the penguins and albatrosses, and loved every bit of it! It is an amazing place… and I hope to go back there someday to renew the incredible experience of visiting the most remote place on Earth.

I love nature and birding photography… but I’m stepping out of my comfort zone to explore new areas and challenges in photography. That’s why I’ve created my other web site  www.BirdingPix.me     to share my photography interests beyond birding and nature… such as landscapes, nighttime, people, light-painting, and travel photography.   Fun!
