Prime v. Zoom Lenses. It’s one of those age-old battles like Mac v. PC, or Xbox v. Playstation. While it’s a subject that brings out passionate views from both sides, my goal in this presentation is not to take sides, but to give photographers a basic primer on the two types of lenses so that they can make better informed buying decisions.

No matter where I go, my photographs of eagles attract attention. I get many questions about how to do this work and while I have decades of experience that cannot be condensed into a blog post, I can give you some idea of how to photograph eagles, just in case you’re motivated to try it.

If you have a moving, shocking, thought-provoking, arresting, important, serious photograph that causes people to react, think, feel, etc., it doesn’t matter whether you are old or young, female or male, what race you are, what religion you are, what your history is or what your future holds, what country you live in, how much money you have, how pretty you are, how strong you are, how powerful you are, how important you are, how cool you are – all that matters – and I do mean ALL that matters – is the picture.
