Campfire Companion Wildlife Photography – Studio 29

I served Utah’s wildlife and wildlife enthusiasts from 1986 to 2018 at the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources. My work covered many rich aspects including studying wildlife behaviors and habitat protection. I also conducted tours and various wildlife education/recreation programs including wildlife photography and wildlife discovery events and hikes. Media (and later, social media) was a big part of my career wherein I shot, edited and distributed wildlife related photos and video to national and international media to further wildlife education and conservation. 

In 2004, I created Campfire Companion Productions to make products to help people enhance and enjoy outdoor experiences. The flagship product of this effort is my Campfire Companion Harmonica and instructional DVD on how to play classic campfire songs. (see more about me and some free sample harmonica lessons at

 I am now looking forward to furthering my wildlife photography and other art interests and am thrilled to be part of the synergy of creativity at the Monarch!
