THE SMALLER WORLD
When I was younger, I used to spend a lot of time reading my Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Insects and Spiders and a dog-eared collection of old National Geographics that had been repeatedly raided for images in collages and school projects. I developed a strong interest and appreciation in the various aspects of both macro photography and the amazing world it lets us experience.
THE BIGGER PICTURE
I always take a camera with me if I go on a hike, a trip to the zoo, or a camping expedition. While I love the fun of trying to get a perfect up-close photo of an insect, I find it just as fun and challenging to photograph larger animals. One day I’ll have to go on a safari to attempt the perfect picture. I’ll probably get eaten, so make sure you save the SD card when you recover my camera.
