Naturescapture is a wildlife and landscape photography idea developed by me, Richard J Mills. I have been involved with imaging for many years beginning in my teen’s way back in the ancient film days. In fact, I have been involved with imaging most of my life. I make most of the income for my livelihood and photography passion working as a image optimization expert for a large company that manufactures both analog and digital industrial x-ray imaging detectors and equipment.
I travel widely and frequently, like all the time, which gives me an opportunity to see many different areas and have been all over the globe. I find my photography passion in the western US and the Greater Yellowstone Area in particular. My first visit to Yellowstone was in 1976, the bi-centennial year for America and I have never been able to get over it. While I am from North Carolina I currently live in coastal southern Virginia (both beautiful states); I spend many weeks every year in the Yellowstone area. People ask me why I stay so focused on this area as there are so many interesting places here in the US. Its because after my first visit, I knew there was no other place on earth like it, and with a total area of more than 22.5 million mostly wild acres there’s plenty of room to explore, including 2 national parks, wilderness areas, wildlife sanctuaries, national forest and BLM lands.
I hope you enjoy some of my images. The files on my site have been down sized to protect them but most all of the originals are high-resolution and can be printed very large.
