Enkased's Profile Picture
United States
Artist & Photographer.

These days I'm dedicated to digital nature photography consisting of landscapes and macro of insects , though my roots are in film, and have always led a creative life growing up around culture rich people. My drawing was what originally brought me as for many years my outlet was linear black and white drawing and graffiti.

My landscapes are shot during my travels with my fiancee, though I specialize in macro ranging in the life size, and slightly beyond range (1:1- 4:1) of healthy arthropods. Most are in their natural habitat, though I do keep spiders now. I have a fond affinity for Salticidae (Jumping spiders), and dragonflies.



If you like spiders as well, I've gotten to know a Phidippus breeder who offers them up for sale via the internet. Phidippus are the larger, colorful species of jumpers found mainly in the southeast region of the United States. He is a pleasure to deal with, so if you like jumpers as well and think you may want a few to shoot or as pets you can find his site, called here:

check him out, it's well worth it.

I have finally taken some time and setup my own website, check it out,

My Website and Spiders up for Trade

Journal Entry: Wed Feb 25, 2015, 5:54 PM

Finally I've taken some time and designed a website for myself... I used Wix, which after messing around a bit proved to be user friendly and simple to set up.

check it out here


I've recently received a male Phidippus otiosus (common name, the Canopy jumper).  I plan on introducing him to my female, and doing the same with the 2 Phidippus regius (common name, the Regal jumper) I caught in the wild last summer.  Hopefully one of these pairs will mate.  The Regal's are about the same size - the very large Florida strain, so I'm not too worried there, but the Canopy's are a smaller strain found in Georgia, and the males are only about half the size of the massive female I have.  I'm pretty worried the female will make a meal of the little guy, but I've gotten 2 of them, so there will be another chance if that's the case on the first attempt.  Whatever happens, it should be interesting.  

Also, I have several Phidippus that I'd be willing to trade if anyone has something interesting... post breeding all of the Regal's and Canopy's will be up for trade, and I have an adult female Phidippus cardinalis, and one very rare adult male Phidippus mystaceus.

I'm open to trading for reptiles as well... but I would love to get some rare jumpers... for those of you who don't know I'm operating from the east coast, so species from the west coast and midwest would be preferred as I've found jumpers up and down this coastline.

Many thanks for all those recent faves - very much appreciated. I'm only just back from Australia, hence late reply.
