CONVERSATION WITH RICHARD CROSSLEY and SNEAK PEEK OF THE CROSSLEY ID GUIDE: EASTERN BIRDS
We invite you to join a stunning online visual conversation with acclaimed photographer and birder Richard Crossley. Heâ€™ll share a sneak preview of his new book, The Crossley ID Guide:Â Eastern Birds, published by Princeton University Press. Â The book is already getting rave reviews (Audubon Magazineâ€™s Wayne Mones quips, â€œSo whatâ€™s so different about The Crossley ID Guide? Everything.â€). Richardâ€™s vision was to take birding into the 21st-century by creating a bird guide that shows birds the way they are seen in real life. Instead of offering up the usual single â€˜flatâ€™ bird picture, heâ€™s created engaging multi-dimensional scenes with every detail in focus to show a wide range of views ofÂ birds in action, inÂ their proper habitats, near, far and everything between. Until recently, Richardâ€™s revolutionary vision was ahead of the available technology.Â New photography and computer developments were instrumental in allowing him to produce 640 composite scenes of real life birds in many different situations created from over 10,000 of his own photographs that form the heart of THE CROSSLEY ID GUIDE: Eastern Birds (Release date March 9, 2011).
Experience it for yourself.
Richard is ALWAYS full of energy, lots of great information and a little comedy to boot.
