ENDANGERED: Fine Art & Photography Contest 2017 Winner.
First Prize Winner: Fine Art Photography – Congratulations to John Barrett Jr. for Mom’s Time Out. All Rights Reserved.
I am a wildlife and nature photographer, specializing in animal portraits and storytelling. I have spent much of the past two decades in nature, trying to capture the beauty and emotional qualities of animals, particularly endangered species. I have watched as some animal populations have thinned and habitats have been systemically diminished or destroyed. It saddens me that the next generation will not have the opportunity to experience the wonders of nature that I have been so privileged to see. It is for this reason that I will continue to photograph and document the majesty of nature. My goal is to have my images create a connection with the viewer and the animal, forging a bond that hopefully makes the viewer want to support and protect them.
