Long time observation/Photography contributor to Mushroomobserver.org(joined Jan. 2011). Author of "Fungal Freedom-A Guide To Wild Mushrooms Of Washington State." Focusing on all major Genera of common macrofungi, slime molds, myco-heterotrophic flowering plants, Lichens and tree associates in the Pacific Northwest(Washington State specifically). I have contributed over 30,000 of my photographs with descriptions of a multitude of fungi that I know and love on Mushroomobserver.org and seek out to learn new taxa on a daily basis. I’ve Accumulated and am continually expanding my collection of 2,200+ Dried, Documented/vouchered/bagged fungal specimens in my home herbarium(most coinciding with my 5,000+numbered mushroom observer observations-began recording/entering my backlogged collections on MO in 2014). A few of my sequenced collections are novel discoveries for the State of Washington. Also a NAMA(North American Mycological Association) national photography contest award winner, my photos featured in multiple publications (Mother Earth Living, Northernbushcraft, Wikipedia, Discoverlife, Encyclopedia of Life, The Burke Museum(UW) Herbarium Database, "Mushrooms Of The Northwest", "Medicinal Mushrooms of Western North America", “Safe Mushroom Foraging(Iowa State University)”, “Medicinal Mushrooms-The Human Clinical Trials,” “Polypores and Similar Fungi of Eastern and Central North America”, “National Audubon Society Mushrooms of North America(2023)”, Photocrowd and The Mycophile and an avid assistant with ID of fungi for others. A few of my photographs are being used here on iNaturalist as the type examples for species( Inosperma maximum, Urnula padeniana, Hydnellum fuscoindicum, Leptonia cyanea, Cortinarius occidentalis, Asterophora lycoperdoides, Amanita umbrinidisca, Coniferiporia sulphurascens, Lycogala epidendrum complex, Tricholoma pessundatum and Sarcosphaera spp.). I have become almost as equally passionate about ornithology in the last few years and try to capture as many birding images as I can, as well, especially during winter months(along with whatever new plant or critter crosses my path). My bird Photography has been used in PNW Audubon Society presentations, Encyclopedia Of Life and featured in “Birds and Blooms” magazine. Eagle Scout(awarded Dec. 1994) project: habitat restoration of Woodard Creek/wetland with Olympia, WA stream team. Graduate(B.A. The Evergreen State College). TESC master's of environmental science wetland monitoring internship(summer 2009).
Cameras used since 2007: Panasonic LUMIX DMC-LZ3,Canon Powershot sx130is, Canon PowerShot SX150is, Canon Powershot sx530hs and the bulk of my birding fieldwork with Canon powershot SX520hs. All shots freehand. Tripod free. Began using just my iPhone11 Pro Max for all fungi, plant and insect photography starting in June of 2020(everything prior to June 2020 I shot using aforementioned cameras). I set out doing this to prove that guidebook quality documentary photos can be regularly achieved shooting/editing with only an iPhone(at least for organisms in close proximity). The Majority of my birding photography is all still shot with Canon Powershot sx520hs.

All photography, fieldwork, notes and microscopy performed by Drew T Henderson.
