Traveling with Tom
“My current life pursuit is nature, wildlife and bird photography. This ties in perfectly with my love of the outdoors. I grew up in the Texas Panhandle, mainly outdoors; my back yard was one square mile.
I started getting interested in photography around 2011, when I was in the Master Naturalists with Art Arizpe and bought a little Sony camera. In 2013 I got more serious and purchased a full-frame Canon.
Capturing wildlife in their own habitat is challenging but rewarding. When I am in the field it’s about the thrill of the chase and I can’t wait to capture the next image.
My travels have taken me to Ecuador, Argentina, Guatemala, Honduras, Canada, Iceland,Peru, New Zealand and Egypt. Some of my favorite areas to photograph are the Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado and Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming.
I enjoy hiking, exploring, and taking photos in national and state parks, and local natural areas.”
To prepare your images, resize the long side to 2000 pixels, resolution of 72 ppi, color space sRGB, and name them 1FirstName_LastName.jpg, 2FirstName_LastName.jpg.
You may ask for a critique on your images or simply “Show and Tell.”
Please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday, October 15th. Please put “October Critiques” in the subject line.
