September 19 - January 9, 2021
During Boy Scout campouts, and especially a trip to Philmont Scout Ranch in the mountains of Cimarron, New Mexico, Don began a life-long love of nature and the outdoors. Tours of duty with the Navy in Japan and the Far East (where Don bought his first SLR-type camera, a Pentax Spotmatic) and a six-week trip across Europe after graduate school, instilled the desire to travel and experience other cultures and beautiful places throughout the world. Don has now traveled to all seven continents and 74 countries.
Don credits the mentorship of several well-known photographers as being critical to his growth as a photographer. Foremost among these are Marc Muench (David Muench’s son) and Andy Williams, co-founders of Muench Workshops, with whom Don has traveled over a dozen times. This relationship has allowed Don to shoot alongside David Muench during trips to Utah and Kenya. Don has also been fortunate to travel with and learn from several National Geographic photographers such as Joel Sartore, Kim Heacox, and Rich Reid.
Vistas and Voyages showcases Don’s ability to create portraits that capture the personality of both animals and people, and grand landscapes that invite us in and cause us to marvel at the magnificence of God’s creation.”
