Virginia Wildlife Magazine - Annual Photography Showcase

This year’s Virginia Wildlife photography issue is one of the best ever. Starting with the amazing cover-shot of an American Mink and editor Sally Mills’ warm introduction, it passes through all the traditional categories: fauna (birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians and bugs), landscapes (vast scenery and plants), followed by sporting life and textures. The image diversity, photographer pool, and individual perspective are as wide spread as ever. Congratulations to the staff who obviously spent many hours selecting the finalists presented within the many colorful pages. This is a publication that will be revisited over and over. Lastly congratulations to all the photographers who were included in this favored issue and to all who submitted images! Good luck in the coming year.

Virginia Wildlife Magazine - Cover Shot

This is one of my all-time favorite images of this striking species while it roams the shoreline in search of crustaceans as the waves recede back into the Atlantic. The setting sun and clear blue skies provided warm yet subtle lighting on this high contrast bird. When I was first informed that this photograph was being considered for the front cover of Virginia Wildlife Magazine, I was taken back with gratitude. Thanks to the staff at Virginia WIldlife Magazine, part of the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries, for their renewed efforts to continue to publish images captured by so many of the highly talented and dedicated nature photographers that we have here in the Commonwealth. Congratulations to the Editor, Art Director and the rest of the staff on such a beautiful issue. This is truly one of the most colorful and vibrant covers in years. This photo accompanies an amazing article by Glenda Booth adorned with photographs by Lynda Richardson, on our struggling shorebirds and their ever changing habitat.

Virginia Wildlife - Annual Photography Issue 2016

Cover Shot

I am humbled and honored to have this photo adorn the cover of the 2016 annual photography issue of Virginia Wildlife. I have to admit, when I first saw it, I was in a state of disbelief. A surreal sort of moment (or two). When I realized my eyes were not tricking me, gratitude filled my heart for the journey that made this achievement possible. From my fourth grade teacher who connected me with lifelong mentors in the Lynchburd Bird Club at the age of nine, to my loving wife-partner-friend Lori who supports me in all endeavors. And the Cedar Waxwing photo on the inside was icing on the cake. Special thanks to the creative staff at Virginia Wildlife for keeping with the tradition of this favored issue. SEE: LARGER IMAGES
