Bio & Contact

Gary Woods has been an agricultural pest control advisor since 1980 in the heart of the San Joaquin Valley of Central California where he visits orchards and vineyards for his clients scattered inside of a 1200 square mile territory. Since he was 7, Gary has had a fascination with birds and getting as close as possible to observe them and their mannerisms. With the advent of digital photography he found a new and better way to capture his experiences with birds and share what he saw with others. He received an accelerated boost in his education by spending a day with noted wildlife photographer Bob Steele in October of 2006 and has continued to draw inspiration from not only Bob but many other bird photographers like Robert Royse, Glenn Bartley, Matthew Studebaker and Brian Small. This website is an attempt to share with everyone the beauty of not only birds, but other natural subjects encountered where birds are found.
