About Wayne Wolfersberger
Nature Is Wild Photography A family run business specializing in photography for print media, magazines, postcards, greeting cards, calendars & fine art prints. Stock photography is also available through several agencies including Shutterstock and Alamy. Private instruction offered.
Photography and nature have always gone together while Wayne grew up in the Washington D.C. Area. He attended local universities and graduated with degrees in biology and conservation from the University of Maryland and George Mason University. The use of photography to teach concepts to his classes became second nature. Valuable experience was obtained while working for a commercial photographer and later with the US Navy Photo Laboratory and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Wayne taught in Northern Virginia, Maryland and in the United Kingdom under the Fulbright Program. During his years of full time teaching the sciences of biology and earth science, Wayne found time to further expand upon his photographic skills which included wedding photography, school groups and craft shows. Having left full time science teaching, Wayne became an adjunct professor with Virginia Tech & George Mason leaving time for the pursuit of his passion, nature photography. Wayne also taught evening photography classes during the fall, winter and spring which allows for a great deal of traveling to prime locations for nature photography during most of the year but especially during the summer months. For fourteen years Wayne worked as a National Park Service ranger in Yellowstone. He recently moved to Frederick Maryland where he has found new photographic pursuits that include additional landscape scenes of the agricultural and rural scenery so typical of the area. He continues to concentrate on nature photography and most recently led a photo tour of Yellowstone National Park in May-June.
