Some of you have been wondering where I have been lately…. since this economy turned sour this past couple of years, I’ve been shooting a lot of weddings and portraits just to stay in business as a professional photographer – as well as taking on a lot of side projects such as web design and writing projects. My summer/fall wedding season has been very busy and tough, and it’s just about to wrap up for the season, so I can go back to concentrating full-time on my first love –  nature photography.

Lots of updates are on the way, as well as some big news in the near future…. but I’d like to leave you with this shot I took in Longboat Key in Sarasota County on the way back from a double-wedding photo trip a couple of weeks ago…. the perfect touchdown! Expect more images to come a lot more frequently soon…. I’ve been shooting a lot of nature, just haven’t had much time to edit my last several thousand nature shots….. until now!
