Over the years, I have taken thousands of photographs of birds and animals for my own wildlife painting references. I have traveled to national parks, wildlife refuges, bird rehabilitation centers, and have stopped along many a roadside to photograph the beauty of the natural world. For larger predators or more elusive species, I photograph captive animals that are available specifically for artists, photographers and filmmakers. When wildlife is scarce, I enjoy photographing landscapes, flowers and images of nature’s exquisite details.
I have created an art and photography website where I am offering royalty-free Wildlife and Flower Reference Photos for artists, sculptors and carvers. While nothing can replace the invaluable experience of in-the-field research, sometimes artists just don’t have the time or means to do so. Below are some examples of the photos available. My site also features a collection of Fine Art Photo Prints and Canvas Gallery Wraps. Visit often..images are being updated frequently.
