Best wildlife Portfolio on photo.net

David, I'm just not sure how you've done these. They are truly amazing. Too many compliments get left on portfolios on photo.net but your portfolio is truly deserving. Whatever opportunities there are that you claim are close to home, you seem to have made maximum use of them. I think the owl shots are the most obviously spectacular - but I also like the female Mallard :0) If you do make the move to landscape, don't give up the bird photos.

Flavio Lo Scalzo , August 10, 2006; 10:35 A.M.


Great portfolio. Congratulations!

Robert Kane , August 11, 2006; 12:18 A.M.

Great stuff

Excelent photos Dave.I dont see the shot of the Bald Eagle that landed on Jody's head and did the Macaraina, That was a great shot, you should post it.

Eppo Smit , August 11, 2006; 01:47 A.M.

Your pictures are a form of beautiful art. Pleasure to watch your pictures.

This is a portfolio of a real pro! Wonderful images. I can only dream of making such photo's. My birds and swans are not half as good as yours, but if you could spare some time watching/commenting them i would be very pleased. I can still use some tips :) Best regards from the Netherlands, Marga

Hi David

These are one of the most amazing pictures I have ever seen. Incredible. I wonder how long does it take you to get one of those great landing pictures. It was a joy looking through your portfolio. Timea.

Leroy Laverman , August 12, 2007; 06:26 P.M.

Great portfolio David. I will be back to see what you've added. First rate work, can't wait for more. Leroy

Excellent work.


Michael Heim , August 13, 2007; 02:14 P.M.

Job Well Done

David, I can see we share a common affection for our feathered friends. I have focused on Eagles but man I am impressed with the variety of birds you have shot. I would love to share some locations and ideas with you. Maybe we can learn a trick or two from each other.

Claiton Martins-Ferreira , August 18, 2007; 06:08 P.M.


David, you have a great portfolio, really. It's probably one of the best of Photo.Net about birds. I am speechless. You have a wonderful work. Well done!

Derek Scott , August 19, 2007; 12:10 A.M.

David, you are a true inspiration to the world of bird photography. I enjoyed looking at your images. I shall return to view these wonderful creatures to further my love of birds and enjoy your delightful images. Thanks for taking the time to share them with us.

Yuri Elson , August 31, 2007; 03:33 P.M.

Superb bird photography...

David, even though that "Sushi for dinner" shot of yours is so unique, your whole portfolio is outstanding. What I would love to learn from you is, even with that 500mm subject of my jealousy of yours, you've got to get real close to all those birds, and there are so many of them! Would you share how'd you do that? I'd be willing to take lessons, frankly...

Roberto Cobianchi , September 11, 2007; 03:08 P.M.

Excellent portfolio compliments Roberto

Neville Hammond , September 11, 2007; 05:07 P.M.

Hello David,

Thank you for your recent constructive comments on my photograph "Lake Tinaroo Kookaburra". They are most encouraging and appreciated. Your comments have led me to your portfolio which is most impressive and I enjoyed it very much. I am a newcomer to digital photography and while I have always enjoyed taking nice photos it has only developed into a more serious hobby since I have retired. I enjoy this site and am learning heaps from people like yourself who take the time to provide comments and encouragement. Kind regards, Neville H.

Outstanding work, amazing images, showing alot of patience and hard work. I find you pay as much attention to the bird's surroundings as you do the bird. Fantastic.

Kindest regards


Fred Mueller , February 12, 2008; 12:14 A.M.

Holy Cow !!

What a lot of work !!.....terrific......I guess you are a kind of hunter, the best kind......

surprised to see the male frigate bird in with the owls near the top...just was on the island of Barbuda, West Indies, where one of the largest frigate bird colonies is located....I don't think they breed in very many locations at all...we took a small open boat to go see them.....where did you take your picture ??

Reyno Rosete , February 14, 2008; 07:41 P.M.

David I am honestly in awe. This is the most amazing set of bird photographs I have ever seen. I consider it lucky to have ONE picture of that "magnitude" but to have over 400! It blows my mind!

Thank you for taking the time to comment on my photo, I�m just starting to attempt to take my photography past the snap shot phase. The encouragement from someone with as keen an eye as yours is greatly appreciated. I hope someday to be able to achieve the ability to capture photographs half as well as you have. Your work is truly inspiring.

Bill McCrystyn , July 05, 2008; 09:20 A.M.


I noticed you mentioned you wanted to take your Photography to the next level. It is obvious you are serious about your work and have a natural ability. I would suggest you look at the Bird Photographers.Net, a site established by Aurtur Morris one of the worlds most famous bird photographers. It is a critique site only allowing links to your home site such as this one if you wish. It is $20 a year and offers real professional critiques and forums that will vastly help you grow. Nice stuff, keep up the good work.

Outstaning porfolio

David, Your bird portfolio is just outstanding. I have tried to take pictures of our backyard friends, without much luck. I know you have been asked this question more times than you care to remember, but I am going to ask you to please tell me what lens or lenses you use to capture your bird images. I just have a sigma 300mm kit zoom lens. Thank you for sharing your amazing images.

Linh Dinh , July 22, 2008; 11:14 P.M.

J. Harrington USA (Massachusetts) , September 10, 2008; 09:51 P.M.

Bird photos

Dave, your bird photos are stunning. I'd like to suggest that you add descriptive captions to all of them. That way, the image search engines can better index them and people will be contacting you about usage rights for them, if they can figure out how to contact you!

Only do this if you want to earn some money for these great shots!
