Antelope by Marc Bacon

As someone who grew up in Wyoming, I am always shocked when someone tells me that they have never seen a pronghorn antelope. The wild antelope population in Wyoming closely mimics the state’s human population. In 2010, the state was home to approximately 527,000 antelope compared to the 564,460 people reported to the census.

Imagine my surprise¬†when I started college at the University of Nebraska at Kearney where the mascot is the “Lopers” (antelope) and most of my classmates had never seen an antelope. Many of them even believed that they were extinct.

One of my passions is exploring the outdoors and documenting what I find with my camera. My work is primarily wildlife and landscape photography, but I dabble in other fields as well. My photographic style is unique. I am always searching for unique angles and lighting, especially in my landscapes.
