What would your "ideal" nature photography group include?

I have no preconceived notions about an ideal group demographic. The goal is to learn from others, and help teach others when possible.

What inspires you about Nature Photography?

Next to the human form, the shapes, colors, and textures available in nature photography are unlimited.

What kind of Camera and Lenses do you use?

I own a Canon 60D, 17-40L f/4, 24-70L f/2.8,[masked]L f/4 IS and[masked]L f/4 IS.

What is your experience in Nature Photography or Photography of any type?

I call myself a generalist, having tried everything from sports, scenery and wildlife to weddings, bugs and artistic nudes. I grew up and spent half my life in Western Pennsylvania, and the nature photography available to us was unending.

Please list some of your Favorite Nature Spots in Illinois?

Morton Arboretum, Little Red Schoolhouse, Starved Rock, Chicago Botanic Garden, the many forest preserves we are blessed with.


I'm Jack and have been a freelance photographer for many years, shooting landscapes, wildlife, weddings, sporting events, lifestyle, and car and aviation shows. More recently I have been working on studio & location work with models in many genres.
