My Featured Galleries include images from my travels, including my recent travels through Italy as well as trips I have taken in the United States. I try to blend my love of art with my photography and especially in my images from Europe I sometimes use my Holga film camera (and black and white film) to convey the timelessness of place. I also love photographing with my infrared converted cameras for an added dimension in my work.
All images are available for sale. I do not crop to specific generic sizes. Instead each image is printed as shown to optimize its unique composition. I print on archival paper with archival inks and will ship in a timely manner. Matting is available at a nominal charge.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email me and I will answer any questions you may have.
Tuscawilla Photography is named after Tuscawilla Prairie, a preserve near my home in Micanopy, Florida where I have lived for 30 years. My passion is photography, my love is art and I try to combine the two whenever possible.
My camera gear includes Canon, Olympus, Rolleiflex and Holga cameras. My editing vehicle is Photoshop CC and Lightroom. I was a Co-Moderator in the Out of the Box Forum on BirdPhotographers.net for 5 years - a critique forum that was instrumental in making me a better photographer and artist and I enjoyed being the Editor of Denise Ippolito's Creative Photography eMiniMagazine while it was in existence.
I was honored to be a Finalist in the 1st Annual Birds As Art International Bird Photography Contest in the Digital Art Category in 2012. Recently two of my images were chosen as Finalists in the 2013-2014 Digital Art Category in the 2nd Annual Birds As Art International Photography Contest. One was chosen as 1st Runner-up (tie) and one was chosen First (tie) in the Peoples Choice voting.
I would love to know about the details of the camera and the lenses that you are currently using. I went through the photographs and they were indeed exceptional work. Most of them, I think doesn’t need any editing.
