Practicing architect by profession - amateur photographer for enjoyment

My brother, Dr. Neale Blackwood, and I spend numerous hours together photographing wildlife.
His website is www.cememephotos.com and viewers will note a strong similarity of wildlife
subjects between our two sites. However, our photos are not the same since we use
different photo equipment and visualize individually.

For many years Tucker County has been our home away from home for photographing wildlife. The diversity of wildlife photo opportunities has been extraordinary, mainly because of the different environs available for exploration. Unfortunately, as more corporate held property is leased to special interest groups, access availability to these areas is being drastically reduced.

Starting in 2011, www.wvblackbears.com will be showing wildlife photos from other parts of the country. A majority of these new photos will be taken in out-of-state National Wildlife Refuges where public access for photographers is encouraged. Thank you U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Enjoy.
