Introduction "Our job is to record, each in his own way, this world of light and shadow and time that will never come again exactly as it is today." - Edward Abbey Hello, the name is Chase. Birder, Bass player, Photographer, Explorer I recently picked up a Nikon D40 for my 24th birthday. I used to be into 35mm slr photography but ceased for quite a few years. I'm currently re-learning everything I knew and more! I want others to live vicariously through my images. Encourage people to get out and see our great planet. I enjoy shooting Americana, re-enactments, wildlife, historical, landscape, the Pine Barrens of New Jersey, light-painting, night skies, weather phenomenon and birds.
Interests birding, photography, bass playing, music, conservation, atmospheric optics, meteorology, beer, tons more.
