“I have been a nature photographer for over 3 decades…full time for 12 years. I am a member of the North American Nature Photography Association (NANPA). My focus is on South Texas but I also range into other areas of the U.S. a few times each year.” ~Larry Ditto
My photos have appeared in National Geographic books, Field & Stream, Natural History, Sports Afield and other magazines for many years. Audubon calendars, Texas Parks & Wildlife Magazine, National Wildlife, and Texas Highways regularly feature my work. In 2000, I won The Valley Land Fund Wildlife Photo Contest along with my good friend Greg Lasley. If you happened to read the book, Texas Wildlife Portfolio, you saw a lot of my photos there.
When I’m not shooting or working photos on the computer, I lead workshops, conduct instructional tours, judge photography contests, and advise landowners on how to set up commercial wildlife photography operations. My training as a wildlife biologist and background as a manager in the National Wildlife Refuge System are huge assets in my pursuit of wildlife photography.
I conduct several workshops and instructional tours each year (see the Instructional Tours page on this site). At the same time, I’m expanding my horizons in Photoshop software, an essential part of the digital photography world.
