Andy Dobson is a professor of Ecology at Princeton University, NJ. His research takes him to Serengeti, India, Costa Rica, California, and too many conferences.

This site serves to display some of the pictures that get taken early in the morning when everyone else is sleeping or when there's a chance to escape from a workshop or scientific meeting.

I first got interested in wildlife photography when my mother gave me Erik Hoskings "An Eye for a Bird", this interest was further kindled by Jane Bown's amazing photographs in the Observer and odd glimpses of Willy Ronis's pictures. I first seriously used a camera on Princeton field trips to Kenya and Costa Rica and I now manage to do several trips a year with my long-term collaborator Pete Hudson - check out his amazing site. My main use for the pictures is in lectures to students and at conferences..
