Hello, I am Ken Archer a nature photographer with more than 30 years of adventure and experience creating photographs in wild natural areas. Welcome to my on-line gallery.

Wild places and the creatures inhabiting them, have always been a vital part of my liveliness. Regular forays to wild places provide a healing balance to my daily life. The challenge of creating unique images of wildness through photography is my personal way of experiencing the wonders of nature. I am especially grateful for the opportunity to share my favorite photographs with folks who love, respect and depend on natural places to enhance their lives as I do.

Free roaming North American wildlife and unique landscapes primarily of the North-western United States and Canada are the subjects of my photographic explorations.

My photos regularly appear in outdoor publications and calendars. A few credits include Natures Best, National Wildlife Calendars, Sierra Club Calendars, Falcon Press Books and Calendars, Globe Pequot Press, Smith-southwestern Books and Calendars, American Hunter, Backpacker Magazine, Birder's World, Colorado Division of Wildlife Publications, Ducks Unlimited Publications, Game & Fish Publications, Montana Outdoors, Outdoor Life Magazine, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation Publications, Wyoming Wildlife...

All the photos displayed in my galleries are available as fine art prints and editorial/advertising purposes. Please contact me for more information at [email protected] .

In the spring of 2010 I was offered the wonderful opportunity to co-lead nature photography workshops with Trogon Tours. I truly enjoyed sharing my knowledge and experience with folks from various parts of the world and walks of life. Although we were very different individuals, all of us shared the strong desire to create quality nature photographs. The experience was extremely rewarding for me personally and photographically. A few of our upcoming photo tours include great places such as Yellowstone National Park, The Seward Peninsula near Nome Alaska and Malheur NWR in the United States. And Africa, Argentina, Ecuador and Thailand abroad. Please visit www.trogontours.net for information about future workshops.

I am happy to invite you to explore my photo galleries. It is my hope you will find a photo or two that remind you of special past memories in the great outdoors or inspires you to "get out there" and create your own unique visions of wildness.

Please visit often for these galleries are a continuous work in progress.
