2015 in Review

2015 has been one of, if not, my best wildlife photography year to date. I've photographed in swamps, mountains, valleys, lakes, rivers and other great locations. 2015 is the year that I won in the Wildlife in NC magazine and had my image published on the cover. I've photographed more black bear than ever before. I photographed more eagles in 2015 than any other year. I will remember this year as the year that I photographed not only one but TWO red wolves. Having searched endlessly for them over the years it was such an honor and privilege to witness and photograph them.  I've made solo trips, I've made trips with my beautiful wife Candace & I've also taken a few trips with a person who I'd like to call a good friend, Tim (you can see his site here). I don't think I can pick an image out of these 20 that I would say is my favorite. Each and every one has a special place in my heart and for me its all about the experience. Out of all the traveling and photographing in 2015 I can honestly say it's been a great year but I'm more excited than ever to see what 2016 holds in store. Enjoy!
