Welcome to the Shoreside Images website. I began to be interested in photography in grade school sometimes being allowed to use my father's Kodak folding 620 camera. We lived in a third floor apartment and I could sometimes photograph birds at our window feeder. In high school I was a photographer for the school newspaper. At the time, we used an old Speed Graphic 4"x5" camera. After a series of home black and white darkrooms, 4"x5" view cameras, and later color 35mm film cameras, I've joined the digital age using Canon digital cameras and lenses. I have also had a long interest in flying and have been a part time flight instructor for 34 years and this naturally carries over to birds. They are fascinating creatures and it is humbling to watch (with some envy) their flight abilities. After seeing some of Art Morris's bird images and later taking several workshops with him, I decided to focus.... more on bird photography. I believe that besides the texts of all religions, that God also speaks to us through his creatures and maybe a little bit more through birds ( "I know all the birds of the sky..." Psalm50 ). They are also a reminder of our environmental problems. Just as coal miners in the past used canaries as an early warning of toxic air, we need to pay attention to the increasing difficulty bird species are having with our environment today.
Ordering Prints All images are available in personally processed 13"x19" (image 12"x18") archival prints using photo rag matte paper and Epson pigment inks. Some can also be printed in different sizes as well as canvas wraps and metal prints on request.
I hope you enjoy looking at the images on the website and will try to keep it updated with new images.

Very good work Dr. Just what I expected and then some! Looking forward to seeing what you enter in Gadsden show.
Your photographs are simply beautiful! A real artist's perspective & one not possible without your obvious LOVE and awe of birds. I am thankful you've found a way to share this love and art; not just with your family but with others. I remember when you took us to see Jonathan Livingston Seagull in 1973. I was 8 years old. much love, your proud daughter!
