Incorporating anecdotes from biology, ecology, and cultural anthropology, I will share my adventures in insect photography in the hopes of inspiring you to pick up your camera and look at insects with a new lens.

Anolis

One of my favorite nature photographers is Nick Brandt, who published the lush  compilation of black-and-white odes to African animals called On This Earth. When I heard that Nick Brandt would be the juror at the Center for Fine Art Photography’s Art in Nature exhibit, I jumped at the chance to have him review my work. I was twitterpated when he chose my photograph of a Hawaiian Anolis to be included in the exhibit, on display from October 21st through November 26th, 2011 in Fort Collins, Colorado.
