I know that many of you, like me, are especially fascinated by the incredible family of birds known as the Birds-of-Paradise. I love photographing them, and sharing the stories of these unique birds.
My goal with my photography is to spread appreciation and awareness about species like Birds-of-Paradise, and the habitats they depend on, in their case, the rainforests of New Guinea. If you want to join me in this effort, one way you can do that is by displaying and sharing my images. Yes, this is a sales pitch, because selling my work is how I make a living so I can keep doing this. But when you purchase my work, whether it’s a calendar, print, or book, you are helping others see and appreciate birds as well, and you have become part of my team, spreading the message.
So thanks for reading, and as the holidays approach, and my print sale is running, think about joining me in spreading your love for birds to others. I appreciate your support, and I believe together we can make a positive impact.
“Paradise Practice” is now available for purchase in my fine art store.
Bird-of-Paradise Square Print Collection
Many of my Bird-of-Paradise images crop nicely to squares, and I have been gradually adding new images to this square print collection. I love displaying these square prints in groupings on the wall, and you might as well. Here are our newest additions to the collection.
