We are the eyes of the world. People rely on us for our perception of the Earth. Our privilege grows with that, but our responsibility grows as well. Frans Lanting
First and foremost, photographing nature is our passion. We do it simply because we love it.
The majority of our photographs are taken along the Gulf Coast of Florida. We have a great respect for nature and, therefore, never remove any distractions, such as twigs or do anything to disrupt the natural habits of wildlife.
Most of our field trips are in locations that are easily accessible by the public, such as county, state and federal parks and Audubon sanctuaries. If you are planning a trip to Southwest Florida and would like information about the area, have questions about our equipment or techniques, we would be happy to talk with you ( firstname.lastname@example.org ).
We use Canon 7D camera bodies and Canon lenses ( most often the 100-400 IS, 10-22 wide angle, and 17-85 IS ), Gitzo tripods with Kirk ball heads, and Lowepro camera packs.
Processing the Images
Adobe Photoshop is used for color correction and cropping. No manipulation is done to the digital image other than fine-tuning. The result is a beautiful hand-crafted print.
Every photograph is hand crafted by the photographer using the highest quality materials. Printing is done on an Epson 3800 printer using Epson archival papers exclusively. The prints have vibrant colors that will last for decades under normal display conditions. Only acid free mattes are used.
Our Certificate of authenticity is included with every print purchased. The Certificate is signed by the photographer and verifies print details and edition number (if limited edition applies).
If for any reason you are not completely satisfied with any print purchase, simply return it within two weeks from purchase in the original packaging, in undamaged condition, and we will provide a full refund (less shipping charges).
Free shipping on all orders within the USA. Orders are shipped via USPS or UPS unless otherwise requested. Other shipping methods requested will be covered by the buyer.
