Daryl L. Hunter, Irwin, Idaho Member Since November 2007 Artist Statement Daryl L. Hunter is a Author/Photographer/Publisher/Guide based in the Greater Yellowstone Region When I was a wander lusting young man I would often find myself in beautiful places, so I bought a camera so I could document my wanderlust.1n 1987 I packed up my Toyo 4X5 view camera, Pentex 6X7 medium format camera, and my 35-millimeter cameras and headed to Jackson Hole Wyoming, one of the best places on earth to be an outdoor photographer. I lead photography tours and workshops in Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks as well as other destinations I love like Zion, Arches, Canyonlands, Glacier and Yosemite National Parks. The Canadian Rockies of Banff, Yoho and Jasper National Parks are in the works. My photography, wildlife video, and feature stories have been published by Passion Planet, National Geographic, Audubon, Outside Magazine, Snow Country, Outdoor life, Esquire Sports, New York Dailey News, Outdoor Photographer Magazine, Warren Miller Productions, U.S.A. Today, San Francisco Magazine, Musher Magazine, Mother Jones, Yes Magazine, Time Magazine, Mule Deer Foundation Magazine, Muley Crazy, International Wolf Magazine, Fly-fisherman, Idaho Magazine, Western Byways, Wyoming Lifestyle, and Bugle Magazine. As a stock photographer his photographs have been published all over the world.
Photography has more payoffs than money. Long before finding commercial success I found photography drove me to search out pretty places or to scrupulously dissect my surroundings to find magical light. This quest drew me to seek out beautiful things even in adverse conditions. Wherever we go with our photographer’s eye, we are looking for a beautiful rectangle we can isolate out of the chaos of life, when you are always seeking beauty, you will find more than your share ~ that is rich!
