Hi Jim

I came across your D300 issues on the Nikon forum. Have you still got an AF problem? I had it for a while, but just before sending it away it seemed to go away. Obviously there's now a lack of confidence in the camera.

Hello Jim,
I met you at Sandy Point in the summer of 2006 while I was working for Parker River NWR. I just recently found the business card you had given me and decided to check out your site. I love all your pictures, especially the plovers of course. I work now at Griswold Point in Old Lyme, CT. It's a great place to bird. If you ever want to come down and take pictures, I'd be happy to show you around! I am gonna try to get up to Plymouth to see your exhibit this summer!

Jim, you gave me your business card in 2006 on the Chain bridge in NBPT (we were both photographing the eagles). I finally took the time to look at the site...I wish I had done so much sooner! I will be sure to come back to recieve inspiration from the stunning photos that you have posted. I hope to run into you again as the eagles are back along the Merrimac.

I followed a link from the dpreview forum to your gallery and found a great collection of bird and wildlife photos. Keep up the good work!

Hello Jim,
I can only describe your galleries as inspiring. Both in the scope and quality of your photography and in your work towards the stewardship of the wetlands at Haverhill. Thank you very much for sharing this.

Full Frame at 12MP makes a LOT of sense. It's called depth of field control and "lens choice"...Canon's 5D has made my D2x and other crop-sensored cameras almost redundant for countless jobs. Until you've shot FF digital with the any of the hundreds of Nikkor lenses designed for FF use,it's pretty hard to understand the difference between FF and crop-sensor shooting. I have only 35 years of 35mm experience and eight years of crop-sensored Nikon use,so it might be possible that my relative inexperience makes me unqualified to say it, but 12MP and FF makes a LOT of sense. Ask any of the hundreds of thousands of Canon shooters who are thrilled with the 5D and FF at 12.8 makes a LOT of sense. But you probably wouldn't really "know it" until you'd shot FF at 12.8 MP.

Tears to my eyes...almost.

Congragulations Jim on the award winning photo of the RTailed Hawk! Your pics are the best on the net. 04-Jun-2006 20:58
As a past No. Andover resident + parttime Plum Islander for 20+ years who spent hours walking in the woods, empty lots, swimming in/viewing/walking by The Basin and ocean at PI, and all the sights on the trek to 60th Street, PI, I am thrilled to relive my past! I'm inspecting all the flora + fauna I came to anticipate glimpsing. I can now inspect all that via photos. Stunningly lovely photos. Thanks. 27-May-2006 22:20
Brilliant. Freaking brilliant. Ian Schwartz.
Brian McGeough26-Mar-2006 15:53

Just a message from Switzerland...very beautiful, pictures very very good!!

I would like to work as you :-)


PS : I wrote an email to you, but no answer :-/

Hey Jim,
Wonderful work you have in your galleries. Upon reflection, I think we may have briefly met at Ding Darling the evening of Feb. 15. You were patiently waiting for the same night heron you had shot the night before to come out of the shadows and were pointing it out to those of us who had stopped. I'm basing this on the equipment you shoot. The guy I spoke with was set up with a D2X/500 f/4 combo.

Regardless, between the osprey and night heron images, it looks like you had a successful time while on Sanibel. I know I enjoyed my visit there as well.

Hillary 10-Jan-2006 02:59
Hey James, great shots!! I'm impressed!! You need to yourself up here to the photographers playground!
Trent Johnson 07-Dec-2005 06:05

Hi Jim!
Your wildlife & bird pictures are absolutely fantastic in every way, you are my number one favorite for this kind of photographie!! Keep up your fantastic work, you are a true inspiration for me!!
Gary W. Meek 03-Jul-2005 21:57
Jim I am looking to a buy Nikon's 200-400, how do you like the lens, I see you have a 500mm prime, how does the sharpness compare. Are you still using the 1.4 with the 2X high speed crop. I love my D2X and have a 300mm 2.8 but the 200-400 would be nice.
Samantha 19-May-2005 13:55
Mr. Fenton,
I live in Rochester where you took the Heron picture we saw on the Nature Photographer's website. I am 12yo and interested in photography, especially nature. You have great pictures.
jim fenton01-May-2005 10:47
Tom...These were all shot using a 500 AFSII and a TC14EII TC.
Tom Kilroy01-May-2005 01:34
Jim what lens were you using with the D2X shots after you got a working camera?
Marc Vermeulen22-Mar-2005 13:51
You have some beautiful work here
martin 17-Mar-2005 21:08
maybe thats the trick, catch the camera by surprise!! wish mine had been close to being so well focused let alone the shot itself!!
jim fenton11-Feb-2005 16:11

WOW,,, Fantastic work, these are just beautiful pictures. It's no wonder I've heard so many incredible things about you! How can we contact you to obtain any prints of what we see?
Guest 15-Dec-2004 09:52
Hello Jim, you've got a marvellous gallery here. I really like the colors that come out of your D70. Is there any chance that you could share you post-processing workflow with me to achieve such vibrant and saturated colors?

Really enjoyed looking through all your pictures. It has a color "bang" to it that I don't really see in pictures from other D70 owner's pictures.

Thanks and I do look forward to updates!
