It takes no more than to walk out your door and listen, really listen to your surroundings and the sounds that you hear that have always been there but never heard. Then look in the directions of the sounds and study what you see. The squirrels frolicking with each other, the array of birds singing and calling their mates, and the sound of the frogs after the rains. Then you think, will they be there tomorrow or the next day for our children or their children to see and hear.
My passion for photographing wildlife is selfish because I get to stop, listen and see all the beautiful animals we have and I can preserve those animals in my photographs. The list of nearly extinct or endangered animals grows more numerous everyday. Unless we take care of what has been placed here for us to treasure the only way you will ever know they were here will be through the photographs .
Keith Lovejoy started his hobby in 1976 while film was prevalent and digital only a working thought. In 2000, he invested in a digital camera and said good bye to the darkroom mess. Since 2004, he has frequented local rodeo events taking pictures for the competitors. Not forgetting his compassion for wildlife you can find him seeking out a critter somewhere to photograph. Traveling and recording memories by photos is the hobby part of the compassion to share his finds with others.
