I am a professional photographer in the South Florida area. I have been fascinated with insects and wildlife since I was a small child. my grandparents would give me their used maxwell house coffee tins when they were finished with them and I would put grass and sticks inside, then go out collecting insects, spiders and all types of wildlife to study, I did this since the age of 5. I then used to read about wildlfe but never really did any kind of hands on activities with it, but then after I started my photography career several years ago, I purchased my first macro lens and then I fell in love with them once again. Now I take every opportunity I can to go out and take photos of wildlife, especially insects and spiders. I am open to helping anyone who has questions with photography as long as they don't mind my questions about taxonomy!
