Field Notes Print Info

One of my goals when I’m out shooting birds in flight is to grab an image with a cool, mid-air pose. Well, turns out Snow Geese are pretty good at pulling off interesting aerobatics as they search for a place to land for the evening.

This was taken one sunny winter evening at Bosque Del Apache Wildlife Refuge while literally hundreds of Snow Geese were returning to a small pond. The back / sidelight was just gorgeous and I snapped shot after shot of these fantastic birds as they came in to stake out a spot for the night.

Most of the attempts were misses – sometimes focus was a bit off, sometimes framing was, sometimes I didn’t like the background, sometimes the birds were just too far away. However, every now and then everything comes together and you capture a really cool moment.

I like to think this is one of those kinds of shots :)

About Our Prints....

I currently sell individual prints only. Each image is custom printed in house by me on our commercial grade inkjet printer. Each print is individually inspected and carefully packaged for shipment.

Please note that if you'd like another type of print (canvas for example) or another frame style, we can certainly accommodate you, just use the contact us page and we'll customize the artwork to make it perfect for your home.

(Note - we are no longer offering framed prints. The potential for damage in transit was very high and the shipping for large framed prints was outrageous, sometimes costing over $100 for larger pieces. Additionally, we've found our clients seem happier when they can work with their own local framing shop.)


Our framed prints are guaranteed for as long as you own them against wear, fading, or deterioration. Loose prints are also guaranteed for as long as you own them provided you have them framed under glass using archival materials. We want you to LOVE your prints, so we offer a refund as long as the print or framed print is returned in like new condition within 30 days.


All prints have a signature in the corner, usually the lower right hand when possible.


Delivery time varies and depends on a number of factors, but we always strive to get your prints delivered to you as quickly as possible. I personally inspect each and every piece before it leaves our building. If I'm out of town taking more photos, it can cause a delay, but a good rule of thumb is that a loose print will ship within 2 weeks and a framed print within 3 weeks. That time is significantly shorter if I'm in town at the time the order is placed. If you need a print done by a certain date, you can contact me and I'll be happy to give you an estimated delivery date.


We are now offering quantity discounts if you are interested in two or more pieces. Simply contact me with the sizes and names of the images you are interested in and I will be happy to get you a quote. The more pieces you order, the better the discount.

Thanks for your interest!
