Hi, my name is Paul, but you can call me Coop. I was raised in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains in New York where I enjoyed fishing, hiking and being outdoors. Later I moved to the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in North Carolina. There I was introduced to the hobby of birding, by Wildlife Artist Tim Larson - ​www.​timlarsonart.​com. My southerly migration finally brought me to Merritt Island, Florida, a Mecca for birders and fishermen as well as home to Kennedy Space Center.
While kayaking, fishing and birding the Space Coast of Florida, I realized I was experiencing many things that most people never get to see or do. I now use digital photography to share these sights and experiences, from rocket launches, beautiful birds & wildlife, nature scenes and anything else I think is interesting. So, here we are - I hope you enjoy!

Thanks for looking,
Paul "Coop" Cooper
