First, I’m sorry I’ve been so absent for the past month. Between a bit of a health issue and then a major power outage I’ve been too lax about posting. I’m just not getting out to shoot that much but I’ll try to do better.
I am very fortunate to have a growing number of friends who are very accomplished Nature Photographers. The internet allows us to meet people from all over the world and for a non-traveler such as myself the opportunity is a real boon. Several are linked here and I highly recommend visiting their sites. You will see some truly outstanding work.
I would like to mention one site that was born on 11/11/11. WhyTake.net has been created by my friends Alister Benn and Rafael Rojas, along with their partners Juanli Sun and Anca Minican, all of whom are outstanding nature photographers. The purpose of WhyTake is to provide a social network and create a global database of nature photography images which will serve as a portal to each photographers website. In addition, they will be marketing the site which will afford all participants the opportunity to be seen and possibly contacted for use of their images.
WhyTake is divided into three basic sections. Inspire is a reloading page filled with just that…inspirational images. Connect allows the photographer a chance to meet and get to know others from around the world. Explore is for searching the ever-growing database.
This is truly what Nature Photographers have been looking for in a social network.
Here is the link to my portfolio page and below is one of the images I have placed there. If you click the image you will go to the WhyTake page for it.
