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 annual fall canoe/photography trips 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, Our Iowa magazine and calendar and Paddling.net calendar.

I am retired from an engineering lab at Rockwell Collins, so now look forward to spending much more time hiking and paddling 🙂
