"Don teaches photography, sure. But while you are taking notes on exposure and composition you will also find yourself discovering what he really wants you to learn--a passion for natural surroundings that literally forces you to try to express it in a way that is meaningful to you. He pursues this with an intensity that will surprise you, no matter how large your appetite for creating more responsive images."

Instruction & Art

Earth Song PhotographyI was told that the vocation of a nature photographer required the wearing of many hats. It was true then, and has become even more so. The coming of the digital revolution has changed the photographic industry irrevocably and in ways that continue to evolve at an almost breath-taking pace. The sage advice that encouraged me to Earth Song Photographydiversify what I offer has served me very well. It has also incited me to continue to grow as new opportunities have arisen and to watch for those opportunities as they come into existence.

Long ago I discovered that I truly enjoy sharing my passion for Earth Song Photographycreating images particularly in ways that involve teaching and giving instructional advice, as well as in offering my images for artistic and educational purposes. The activities described on these pages are designed to highlight the instructive and artistic parts of EarthSong that are outside the workshop formats, which are the primary components of what I do.
