Of birds and other wild critters
Photography started as a fun way to pass time on remote islands and as a way for me to capture photos during my travels to share with family and friends. It progressed quickly to wanting to learn the intricacies of lighting and composition, and I was fortunate to work in some beautiful locations and practice my “skills” with the local fauna.
In Fall 2018, I had the honor of showcasing my photography at the student art gallery at Wake Forest University. The exhibit, “[photo] Tracking in the Galápagos” shared 35 photos taken during fieldwork for my PhD dissertation on Isla Española in the Galápagos Islands. Transforming the science into visually captivating images was a powerful idea for me. Below you can see some of the photos that appeared in the exhibit, plus some favorites from other remote field sites.
