About Gary

I have been carrying a camera into wild places since my first backpacking trip in 1976. I really enjoy exploring our area parks and also my own backyard. During the winter, I spend hours sitting in my tent near the bird feeder trying to get that perfect image. I will often re-visit the same location many times to get just the right light. I also look forward to an annual fall canoe/photography trip to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness in northern Minnesota.

My photo credits include: Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation magazine and calendar, The Iowan, The Boundary Waters Journal magazine, Boundary Waters and Quetico calendar, Images of Iowa calendar, Nature Photographer magazine, Paddling.net 2010 calendar cover.

I recently retired from an engineering lab at Rockwell Collins, so now look forward to spending much more time hiking and paddling :-)
