Better Bird Photographs – tips and tales”

Lynda J Goff, Ph.D.

 

Lynda Goff is a highly published nature photographer and an award-winning master bird sculptor.  As a Professor at the University of California, Santa Cruz, she spent a professional lifetime as an evolutionary biologist, providing her the opportunity to undertake research, photograph and teach on all seven continents including eight expeditions to the Antarctic and more than twenty to the Arctic.  Her photographs have been published in numerous scientific journals and popular magazines including Nature’s Best, Outdoor Photographer, Audubon, National Geographic, Birds and Blooms and American Birding.  Through her photography and carving, Lynda attempts to capture the quintessential nature of the species – perhaps it is the way the animal interacts with its mate or young, takes a bath, soars, or its interactions with predators.  Each photograph that she exhibits provides her a teaching moment to help others appreciate the shear beauty and complexity of the species depicted and the environment in which they live.

 

She is retired (Professor Emerita) after a 34 year long career as professor, research scientist and senior administrator at the University of California.  She is a Fellow of the California Academy of Science and of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and currently resides in Davis, California.
