William Kleinfelder

Profile William Kleinfelder -- From an early age growing up in Florida, I have had an appreciation for nature and its many creatures. I got my first 35mm camera when I joined the Navy, but only dabbled in its use. After my service I had the privilege to work for the Eastern Test Range Optical tracking system group for almost 20 years. I supported many Shuttle launches from Kennedy as a part of the optics group, which was an exciting time. Eventually my experiences working with optical systems and my love for nature came together. I quickly became fascinated with photographing birds and the challenge of capturing them inflight. Tracking Rockets is easier if anyone cares to know. One of my favorite things about photography is there are so many sub categories. Wildlife is still my favorite, but I also enjoy photographing people, landscapes, pets, and various other subjects. People ask me all the time if I'm a professional photographer and I always tell them, "no". I describe myself as a serious amateur. My other hobbies that can sometime distract me from photography are; training and competing my Australian Shepherd in agility, golfing, and the occasional fishing trip.
