Peter Slaney. Award-Winning Photographer & Publisher.

My passion for exploring wild places drives me as I traverse remote country throughout the world shooting our natural environments and its inhabitants. 

I am often reminded of the humble role I play in all of it. I have been blessed with a creative gift and a natural connection with nature and animals from a young age.

I am truly replenished after spending time exploring and filming nature. I am in constant awe in what God puts before me during my travels, the breathtaking landscapes, colors, and weather along with the spellbinding creatures and their amazing senses and abilities.  

Dedicated to becoming an accomplished naturalist, I believe that fine images are earned from a deep respect for nature and the pursuit of knowledge gained by experiencing it. My award-winning work has been published in a variety of publications, framed images grace the walls of homes and corporate offices throughout the world.

I am committed to increasing public awareness about the natural environment through my photography, films, products and community involvement. My goal is to capture that emotion in a creatures eye or moment in time where we truly connect with nature and bring it back to share with you.  

Gifts of nature are as plentiful as they are fragile. From the wetlands to the desert, we must maintain a sense of appreciation, respect and an understanding of our natural environments and the species whose very survival as well as our own depends on finding a balance. 

I have years of experience working with wildlife from a young age and have worked at various wildlife facilities with hands on experience with a variety of animals. I enjoy public speaking and doing education programs talking about wildlife. I have held a variety of positions at these facilities and organizations. I received my wildlife rehabilitation certificate from the IWRC with my primary focus on large predatory mammals and birds of prey.

I have over thirty years’ experience studying and documenting wildlife through my photography, film making and volunteer efforts. I am a naturalist who is dedicating my life to further my knowledge and understanding of our natural world and being a voice for our wildlife and environments to Preserve & Protect Wild Places™.
