Welcome to my humble corner of the internet. The Bard's Abode started off in April 1999 as a place to showcase my wide variety of hobbies. As my interest in photography continues to grow, it has taken center stage. I hold a Masters of Education, I work as a staff member in higher education, and I am a partner in a growing small business venture, so photography is very much a side line for me. Still, I take nearly every opportunity I get to snap a few shots and do my best to gain experience and improve my photographic technique. I have had no formal training, but I have been able to lean on the words and works of others.

As I move forward, I look for chances to experience different genres as I look for my niche. I have a fondness for wildlife photography although I usually have to settle for birds outside my window. Sports and landscapes are subjects I also find intriguing as suggested by my current portfolio. I am hoping to expand into various styles of portraiture as well as pursuing more artistic subject matter. If you've already come this far with me, I hope you'll check in from time to time to see how I'm doing. Comments, questions, and feedback are always welcome.
