The name "The Breathless Photographer" is my attempt to joke about my situation. I'm a photographer and I have COPD and am on oxygen 24/7 and consequently I tend to be breathless a lot of time when I'm shooting. This tends to add a slight challenge to doing things like "zoom with your feet". So, I tend to sit and use my telephoto to bypass that little problem.
I have only recently taken up this hobby. Less than five years ago I bought my first DSLR and fell in love with it. I shoot with a variety of Olympus cameras and infrared converted Olympus cameras. I love to shoot wildlife, macro, landscape and infrared.
I hope that these photos provide as much enjoyment for you the viewer as they have for me while taking them. If you have any comments or criticism please feel free to contact me and I'll respond as soon as possible.
