Beaver Conservation & education
Tom and Pat are a husband and wife team whose photographs appear in hundreds of U.S. and foreign publications each year. Their passion is photographing a single wildlife species in an intimate and in-depth style, recording its key behaviors in every season ending with a complete story package. They have sold photo story packages on grizzlies, black bear, wolves, beaver, badger, mountain goats, and most other North American wildlife. In recent years, they have also focused on international endangered species including: pandas in China, penguins in Antarctica, elephants in Africa, tigers and rhinos in India. They have been featured in magazines including: NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC SOCIETY, NATIONAL WILDLIFE FEDERATION, AUDUBON, SIERRA.
Through their images, they desire to encourage others to be good stewards of this incredible resource--Earth. They make their home in Vancouver, Washington. Tom and Pat are proud sponsors of Beavers Northwest.
