"In loving memory of Ryan Jamie Burda, December 14, 1971-February 26, 2017, I will be showing a world he created. I never knew the beauty of a Coral Reef Aquarium until he taught me. When working behind the lens, I saw a beauty that was absolutely breathtaking. I hope you can find peace in this tiny slice of the mystical world of the ocean." – Cindy Popp

"Producing real life images has been a passion of mine for many years. My focus is to capture subjects as natural and clearly as possible. Clarity is what I generally prefer in my images. When photographing wildlife I try to capture certain behaviors and unique poses including birds feeding, fighting or moving. I enjoy photographing many different subjects but I always come back to birds because they are so fascinating and beautiful." – Michael Engelberger
