Moose’s passion for photography turned into a business in 1981. Along with his wife Sharon, they have dedicated their lives to the education and protection of our wild heritage through his photography. Moose in 2008 added his passion for aviation photography with the same goal of preserving our aviation heritage and the freedoms they protect, pictorially and orally for future generations. Along the way Moose has been honored for his photographic passion: he is a Nikon Ambassador USA, recipient of the John Muir Conservation Award, Research Associate with the Endangered Species Recovery Program, just to name a few. He was part of Epson’s Finish Strong ad campaign. Moose was the creative producer/photographer of his acclaimed film: Warbirds and The Men Who Flew Them. He shares his knowledge through his writing, being published in over 143 magazines worldwide, author of 29 books including his latest, Takeoff and best seller Captured. One of the original Nikon shooters to receive the D1 in 1999, Moose embraced this new technology, becoming the only wildlife photographer in the world to shoot strictly digital in the early years.
