This web log is intended to help document a project to photograph at the wildlife refuges in the Klamath Basin, on the border of Oregon and California, in all seasons. In order to do this I plan to visit the Basin once a month for at least a year, maybe two, maybe the rest of my life. We’ll see how it goes.
I assign myself projects for two reasons. First and foremost to help myself grow as a photographer and secondly to develop a body of work on a given subject or region. I do not have a particular outcome in mind, there might be a book or a series of magazine articles in the end but first I have to do the groundwork. Again, we’ll see how it goes.
This is primarily meant to be a photo blog but I also expect to learn a lot about the birds and wildlife of the area and I will share what I learn here. I have been hanging out in wildlife refuges since the leader of my first photography workshop opened my eyes to their existence. I’ve learned to seek them out wherever I go. I am a photographer, not a birder, but I am learning that in order to become a better bird photographer I have to learn as much as I can about my subjects and their behavior. I expect to learn a great deal during the course of this project.
