Lynn Rogers Photography
Rogers has spent over four decades of his adult life in the forests of northern
Minnesota researching the ways of animals. A world renowned
Rogers has developed research
methods for gaining the trust of bears and other
animals. He relies on that same trust to photograph tender and intimate
behaviors that few have witnessed in the wild. His pictures go beyond
the posed portraits and computer creations that are common in
wildlife photography today. Viewers say the sensitivity and spiritual
nature of Rogers' photographic art
stop them dead in their tracks.
Rogers' pictures have been published by National Geographic,
National Wildlife, and a host of magazines and books around
the world and were used by museums to show animals in their native
environment. The Smithsonian Institute recently selected one of Rogers'
pictures for the cover of their
prestigious book "
The Smithsonian Book of North American Mammals" and used other of his pictures as standards
to represent our mammals.
"Lynn's action photos of leaping game fish and wild
animals are the best around," said
Field And Stream photo editor
Victor Closi after Closi
won the coveted "Magazine Cover of the Year" award with
one of Rogers'
leaping fish photos. Rogers' award-winning photos are cited by many
as the world's best collection of
Minnesota wildlife and a heritage of the people
Lynn is currently working with
the North American Bear Center and the Wildlife Research Institute..
