Scale Models

How can you expect people to help save endangered species if they're afraid of them?

That's why photography plays such an important role in reptile and amphibian conservation: It helps folks see how naturally beautiful these creatures are. Their colors, textures, and patterns are amazing, yet often unappreciated. I like to show that it's possible to get up close without fear.

Try it yourself using a good macro lens, a flash system, trips to your local zoo and/or pet store, patience, and a few key tips.

Many zoos have an area dedicated to herpetology, and most cities have pet stores specializing in reptiles and amphibians (call to ensure they allow photos). Or attend a meeting of a herpetology club and speak with collectors, who may provide access to their animals in exchange for artistic shots.
