Portfolio: Refuges of the Central Valley

At the start of the year I set myself a task of publishing a portfolio of my work once a quarter. Going to work for Cisco kicked my schedule in the knee, so I’ve been behind in some of the projects I wanted to accomplish.

My first portfolio was my Yellowstone Portfolio, which was all new work. I’m now releasing my second portfolio, Refuges of the Central Valley, featuring work that I’ve done over the years at the various wildlife refuges here in California. This is work that’s part of my ongoing personal project on the refuges and the birds and wildlife that depend on them during the winter.

This portfolio is intended to give someone who’s never visited a refuge a sense of the kind of environment they will find there, and how that environment and the birds and wildlife that winter there that can be seen during a visit, and how the location changes from arrival before the first light of dawn through the last vestige of light after the sun sets on you.

I do hope you enjoy it. If you have any comments or feedback I’d love to hear from you.
