The History of Photography and the Wildlife Ho-tographer

I have been fascinated by nature and wildlife photography from a young age. Kodak was my first camera and Minolta was my first SLR but eventually I settled on Canon equipment, buying the EOS-10 and EOS-1 SLR cameras in the late 1980s. When the digital Canon D30 came out in 2000, I agonized over the high price but bought one in the end. It opened my eyes to the possibilities of digital photography. 

To me, embarking on wildlife photo shoots can be very frustrating sometimes. Huge expenses, long hours of traveling and waiting come down to a few crucial shots. The instant feedback of the DSLR improves the odds. Click here to see a history of film and digital photography and take a private tour of the Kodak Technology Vault.

The world has experienced a lot of changes in the last few decades. Habitat destruction and species extinction caused by rampant global development and overpopulation have taken a toll on the animal and plant life on our planet.

As the Wildlife Ho-tographer, I am dedicated to the conservation and protection of our global wildlife for current and future generations, through the power of wildlife imagery. My goal is to view, record and interpret on photographs as many wonderful places and wildlife as possible, while having the least impact and leaving a minimal footprint on our environment.
