Growing up in Wyoming, I have always felt a great deal of passion for wild animals and wild places. I began taking pictures of this beauty when I was 21, and I haven't stopped since. What started as a hobby has turned into something I never dreamed was possible.

The people who influenced my photography the most are Jerry Saunders, who taught me everything I know about cameras, and Tom Mangelsen, who creates the most breathtaking photographs of wild animals and scenery. While Jerry keeps me learning, Tom's photographs keep me reaching for the stars.

I would like to travel the globe in pursuit of the precious moments only nature can provide us with. My dream is to capture magical scenes with my camera and share them with the world.

Thank you, J.R. Hunter
