I’m a photographer and writer based in northwestern Wisconsin.  My second book, DEERLAND, was released by Lyons Press in 2013.  It’s about the major role of deer in the environment and in American culture.  My first book, co-authored with Eric Fromm, was Gut It. Cut It. Cook It.: The Deer Hunter’s Guide to Processing and Preparing Venison (Krause, 2009).  (For health reasons, I’ve since adopted a vegan, whole food plant-based (WFPB) diet.)

My words and images have also appeared at Slate, The Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Canoe Journal, Canoe & Kayak, Capital Times (Madison), Cooking Wild, Deer & Deer Hunting, Duluth News-Tribune, Sierra, and Wisconsin State Journal. Prior to becoming an author, I worked for over twenty years as a freelance business writer and instructional designer.

I’ve always used images to help tell my stories, and during the past decade or so I’ve been learning a lot about architectural and real estate photography.  At present I’m doing this sort of work for only one Realtor: my wife, Jean Hedren.   It’s become a major differentiator for her and her listings.   (You can visit Jean online at Edina Realty and at her Northwest Wisconsin Homes blog and website.  While you’re at it, check out her NW Wisconsin Homes YouTube channel.)

But if you’re an architect, builder, or interior designer, you shouldn’t be settling for mediocre photos that send your prospective clients exactly the wrong message.  Instead, let’s create images that let the excellence of your work shine through.

Or…  Renting out your lake home or cabin through a vacation rental service?  Even though you’re “only” renting your home and not selling it, you’re still competing with dozens of other enticing options that are just a click away.  An investment in stunning interiors, exteriors, and aerials could quickly pay for itself with just an additional week or two of occupancy. Please drop me a line if you’d like to learn more.

Oh. And about that “cancer survivor” thing… In September of 2019, I was diagnosed with metastatic melanoma. Since then, I’ve learned a lot about cancer, cancer culture, statistics, and more. I’m sticking around.
