I've stayed in touch with my (now retired) English teacher from high school. He's always made and sold drawings and paintings he's re-created from photographs. He's looking for new sources, and rather than just going to Google images, he'd like to have some personally-taken photos. Currently, he's looking for birds. If you have any wildlife photos that you would care to email, please shoot me a PM. He specifically requests personally owned photos so as not to infringe on any copyright issues. Bowriter, I'm looking to you because of your photography work, but anyone out there that can help will be appreciated.

Here's a few examples of recent work he's done:

Here's his specific request:

I would love to have the permission of anyone who has a photo or photos of birds or fowls to use as subjects for my pen and ink sketches. If you don't have an issue with copyright, etc., you'd make an old retiree very happy by sharing it or them with me.

my ornithology teacher at University of Tennessee at martin is Dr. Pitts. He is very well know and a great guy he has a passion for taking pics of all types of birds. He has tons of personal pics give him a call or email and I guarantee he will give him all the pics he needs. His contact can be found at utm.edu and search biology faculty

Here is a picture that I took a few years ago. I think it would look cool as a sketch and I would probably even buy it from him.

Dave Foulk takes a lot of critter pics but mostly birds. He has some good ones. His website is http://www.davefoulk.com or you could message him on fb. He's a really nice man and would probably share.

I've got some eagle and osprey photos. If he's in Memphis and interested in anything like that, I'd be glad to loan them to him.
