My Audubon top 100 photo showed up on a video on BBC News yesterday. Found two e-mails this morning from the UK asking about buying my photo. Another very good day.
A good day….
My day was made yesterday when receiving an e-mail from the Audubon Director of Photography that confirmed that I made it into the top 100 for the 2019 Audubon photo contest. Love those e-mails!
Audubon contacted me back in mid-May requesting a raw file to confirm the photo wasn’t manipulated beyond the contest rules. Hoped that I made the top 100 but you never know. Had a similar experience last year with a request for my raw file but did not make it to the top 100.
Taken with Canon 1DX and Canon 500mm F4 IS II mounted on tripod with Wimberley II gimbal head
1/1600 sec @ F8, ISO 400, evaluative metering, +1/3 exposure compensation
One of my Black Skimmer photos from Bolivar Flats was selected as “honorable mention” in the 2015 Audubon Photo Contest. They contacted me several weeks ago and mentioned that my photo had made the semi-finals and that they needed a copy of my RAW file and some info about the photo. I’m thrilled as there were almost 9,000 entries.

My photo got published in the Audubon Magazine with a 2 page spread.
