    Why I like the Nikon D810

    Here is a real-world example showing the extreme usability of the D810 in salvaging an image ...

    We Wanted It All!

    We at The Nature Photographer Club™ are avid nature photographers just like most of you.

    We are members of many image-hosting sites online. I love taking nature photographs, and I have hosted my images on a wide variety of platforms. All of these resources are wonderful in their own way, with multiple features and elements that make any photographer's images both enjoyable (as well as viewable to others). Yet, as a nature photographer, it became clear to me that none of the available image-hosting sites is really run by nature photographers for nature photographers. They're made for the most part by people who have the technology to create them, but who aren't really out there in the wild finding and photographing "this" or "that" new species of X every day.

    Thus, while there are some pretty nifty features to each of the major image-hosting sites, none really has all the tools we nature photographers want to see and need to have. Consequently, while satisfying to use in some peripheral ways, ultimately each of these image-hosting sites has missing elements that left me (and probably many of you) a bit unsatisfied. This lack of satisfaction is what made me join other image-hosting databases ... and keep joining still others ... I was always lured-in by a few neat features some new site would have ... but I ultimately always felt slightly disappointed by (once again) what they did not have: "If only they had this; If only they had that," were the constant thoughts I was always left with.

    Well, rather than complain, I decided to do something about this, and (with my brother's help) I made my own site

    And a little over three years ago, I began to envision and create a pure nature-photography environment, one that had everything I ever wanted ... and, again, with an enormous amount of help from my brother's computer-coding genius, here we are today. What we have created is a full nature photographer community, that has every single feature a nature photographer could possibly want to have, and that is because this entire concept was born with the true nature photographer in mind. (We are by no means finished, yet, either. We're still in 'beta' mode as we tweak this and adjust that ...) Anyway, without further ado:

    Welcome to The Nature Photographer Club™!
