I hope my work encourages others to look at nature more closely, become aware of its beauty,
better understand our relationship to it, and act to protect it.

All images have been taken with hand-held digital cameras in natural ambient light in their actual location; not having to set up a tripod or flash allows me to move to an interesting perspective or shoot quickly to capture fleeting objects or momentary lighting. Images are treated with minimal digital adjustments so they remain truest to nature.
My earliest images in late 2000 were taken with Olympus Ultra-Zoom digital cameras. Images since May 2004 were taken with Nikon D70 and D80 digital SLRs and high-quality Nikon lenses. Images after November 2010 have been taken using a Nikon D7000 DSLR body. I make my own prints on an Epson 2200 inkjet printer with archival pigment inks.
I have been fascinated by nature since my early childhood in rural upstate New York and have been active in photography since my teens. Now, with the freedom of digital photography, I'm able to capture winter’s frost patterns with their amazing intricacy, summer’s stunning flowers, birds, and insects. I like to seize the moment and photograph subjects close up, often with a sparkle that makes them glow!
Other interests include playing percussion in The Concord Band (a 65-piece symphonic wind ensemble), volleyball, kayaking, gardening and reading.
By profession I am a mechanical engineering consultant specializing in product design. Since 1978, I've enjoyed helping companies bring new products to market. My current emphasis is new medical devices. Visit www.tischlerresources.com
Signed archival-quality prints are available primarily in three sizes - 12 x 18”, 9.3 x 14" or 6.5 x 18”. My gallery frames for these prints measure 18 x 24”, 16 x 20” or 13 x 24”, respectively. Prints may be ordered alone, with mats or with gallery framing. Hundreds of images are available as cards or prints on my website, where new images are added every few months as older ones are selectively retired
