My name is Adam. I'm a 35 year old amateur wildlife photographer and have been shooting photos since around 2008.

I guess you can tell that my interests have migrated (no pun intended) away from birds and rested on the many hairy legs of jumping spiders and various insects. I simply love the primal complexity of spiders and the eyes of jumpers just give them so much personality. They're fun to work with too. I love my birds, but spiders are more interesting these days. Plus, I think they get a rather undeserved, poor, reputation. I'd like to dispel some of those fears.

My main reason for sharing these photos with you all is because the amazing things I get to see are often overlooked by most people. I'd like people to learn to love the world around them and the animals (even the nasty ones) that we share a planet with.

I certainly appreciate any comments you may have. As we all know, photography is an evolving process and I'm trying my best to keep up!

Besides all of that, when I'm not shooting photos I play bass guitar, sing, listen to a lot of good metal, work on my cars, read, and watch too much TV. I'd love to talk to some fellow Pittsburghers on here that share my interests. If anyone ever needs a field partner, I'm game! I'd love to trade ideas.

Thanks for checking out my page. I hope some of my photos can make your day a little bit better. Take care, all of you deviants!

Current Residence: McKeesport, PA
Favourite genre of music: Music of all kinds, mostly metal though.
A little update for y'all. Sorry, I haven't been posting much lately. For one, it's been a "dry" season and I haven't found much that was worth photographing. So, that sucks. Aside from that, my computer's hard-drive was loaded and I couldn't get anything off my cards, let alone get Photoshop up and running. Aside from THAT, work has been hectic and I find myself very tired and/or busy with other things. Aside for THAAAAT, there's been some health problems in my immediate family and that's really taken the wind outta my sails. That being said, I really hope 2015 turns out better than this year did. 

As always, thank you to everyone that has taken the time to favorite, follow, or Llama-badge me! It's tough to respond to everyone, but I want you all to know that it really means the world to me (seriously). I hope things pick up soon and the shutter will be clicking again!

Be well, fellow deviants!

Awesome photos! I've always felt that the 'creepy crawlers' that people tend to hate never get the respect they deserve. People see them and are instantly grossed out rather than appreciating the form. You capture them in a flattering way, great job!

Thank you so much! I've still been unable to convince even my best friends that creepy things need love too! It's a natural aversion, I suppose. I still have it a bit for some of the bigger critters. Thanks again for the compliments! I try:)
