What's New
Shows & Talks
Tech Notes


This is Douglas Goodell's photo site featuring birds and related nature scenes.  I must apologize that this site, while showing some of my older images, is very out of date -- because it has been too hard, given a busy schedule, to manage new additions. My Facebook page has more recent recent material.  The section on Shows and Talks is reasonable up-to-date.

The purpose of my work is to celebrate birds and the wonders of nature.  The images are presented in galleries, arranged mostly by species type.  What's New  highlights new works as they are added to the site and galleries; a few favorites are shown separately.  Note that space is limited, so not all images are shown here.  If you are looking for something in particular that is not in the galleries, or have comments, please contact me.

Many of the images presented here are available for purchase as limited edition fine-art prints, and several size options are possible.  Boxed note cards are also available based on a few of the images.  These are outlined in the prints section.

In addition to nature photography for fine art prints, I started working, in 2001, with Jim Wright and Jerry Barrack developing books on nature.  The first book was  In the Presence of Nature: Celery Farm Natural Area in Allendale, NJ to which I was a contributor.  It was published in 2003 by Camino Books, Inc of Philadelphia, PA.   Between 2002 and 2005  we worked in rainforests of Belize and Guatemala preparing material for Jungle of the Maya which was published by The University of Texas Press in late 2006.   This work expended my activities to many other types of wildlife and nature photography.  In 2005 we published Duck Enough to Fly, a story for children about wood duck chicks taking their first big step into the world.  

In 2004, working with Marco Saborio in Costa Rica,  I started developing material for another natural history photo book: Nature's Paradise — Costa Rica.  Some details are outlined in the book link. The book was published by Brio Books of Minneapolis, MN, in April 2012.  After their bankruptcy it was published by Nature Arts Press and was distributed in North America by Atlas Books. Unfortunately,  the book is now sold out and no longer available except in a few places and at extremely high prices through some on-line sellers.  Reviews and several page previews, can be found  by clicking here.   More images and information can also be found on my Facebook Page.  It's material is still available through my lecture series.

Image Quality
Images shown here are optimized for web viewing and do not reflect the true image quality of the limited edition photo prints.  Both water marking and small file size reduce quality.  For example, typical image file sizes here are 50 to 100kb whereas print files are 50 to 100Mb.
