Thank you for visiting my photo galleries. My name is Robert Doiron and I am a hobbyist bird photographer living in New Brunswick, Canada.
During my childhood and early adult life, I spent extensive amount of time birding in New Brunswick. In the 1990’s, I purchased a film camera and Sigma 400mm telephoto lens for the purpose of documenting bird rarities in my area.
In 2008, I purchased my first DSLR camera, a Canon EOS 40D along with a Canon EF 300mm f4L IS USM lens. This new digital camera technology opened up amazing bird photography possibilities. I started traveling a lot across Canada and the United States, and bird photography became a passion. I quickly developed a serious interest in photographing shorebirds but often found myself in need of more reach than what my 300mm lens could give me. This lead to the purchase of a Canon EF 500mm f4L IS USM lens in 2009 and a Canon EF 800mm f5.6L IS USM lens in 2010.
Although I currently own several telephoto lens, my 800mm lens still remains my workhorse lens of choice for bird photography. My telephoto lenses are normally used on Gitzo carbon fiber tripods with a Wimberly gimbal head. When taking photos of birds in flight, I will handhold my camera and lens.
