Abbott has been photographing birds, wildlife and general nature subjects since
1967. His photography benefits from his extensive career experience in areas of
biomedical and computer R&D, studies of photographic technique and
composition, and experiences teaching classes and workshops—and many hours of
practice. Abbott has served as a photographer at the High Desert Museum since
2008, allowing him to gain knowledge of raptor behavior that helps him capture
stunning photos of birds-in-flight. His work has been published in scientific
and industry journals and fine art books, and is used extensively by the High
Abbott’s broad range of interests, experience and outgoing personality
contribute to his ability to communicate complex subjects so laypeople can
understand them. He loves to share his in-depth knowledge and encourage others
in the art and skill of photography.
