BIOGRAPHY

I am a zoologist by training though I do cancer research now. I am originally from Ireland but have been living in the US for the last 15 years. Its no surprise that nature especially animals are my main interest. I use my photos to make people aware of what is around them by using the photos in presentations in the classroom, at science fairs etc. I often photograph in public parks with many people going by and it is fun to have them stop and try to see what I am looking at. Then the questions start... what type of bird is that? The kids are the best. On seeing a black crowned night heron, a little girl shouted out excitedly to her mom モMom come see the penguin!!" There is more to appreciating animal life than the zoo or TV documentaries but often kids are not very aware of that. Recently on explaining to people that what I was taking photos of was not a small wounded bird but actually a red bat, quite a few ran for cover. One determined boy stayed with me asking question after question while his nervous mom frantically tried to get him away from the bat. Bats have been badly treated because of misinformation and ignorance but hopefully educating people will help reverse that. So my photos not only allow me to capture the image but often the memory of the people I met that day and the questions and conversations that flowed from that. Some of my favourite photos may not be the best technically for that reason. Lastly and certainly not least, my daughter accompanies me on many of these trips and she has become quite expert at answering questions for me and can gather quite an audience even at 11 years old. I find I am rating photos less and less and am trying to comment more. I always love comments on my photos, especially those that suggest how to correct or improve them. Thanks for your time Barry
