About George Ward’s Photography
An enduring presence in American nature photography for almost forty years, George Ward’s images have been widely featured in national publications, including many appearances in the Audubon Society and Sierra Club calendars and note cards. Magazine credits include Sierra, Newsweek, Outside, Backpacker, Outdoor Photographer, Nature’s Best, Smithsonian and Sunset. His work has also appeared in numerous books showcasing the natural history of the West, and his art prints are part of many private and corporate collections.
George first discovered nature in art early in life with Audubon’s astonishing Birds of America. Much later, after focusing on music for most of the 1970s, George obtained a Nikon camera and taught himself photography. He went on to use the 4×5 view camera exclusively for twenty years, between 1988 and 2008, and currently uses Nikon DSLRs.
Each image in George’s library represents a single photograph as recorded by the camera. He does not composite or clone images. Any color or density adjustments are are kept to a minimum.
