Elk hunter and horse in heavy snowfall About Mitch Kezar
At age eight, armed with his mother's Kodak Brownie, Mitch would stalk animals on his family's northern Minnesota farm, capturing them on film for 4-H photography projects. Today, Mitch is still shooting, primarily outdoors. Capitalizing on skills honed during a 15-year career as a photojournalist for major metropolitan newspapers, he works to create unforgettable images that tell stories and convey emotions. Twice-nominated for the Pulitzer Prize in spot news photography, Mitch has shot in the frigid depths of Lake Superior for National Geographic Magazine, trailed presidential candidates across the country for Time and Newsweek magazines, spent days in sub-zero temperatures shooting ads for snowmobiles, traveled with natives across Africa and ridden trains across China with peasants and their chickens - all for the perfect image. Today his work is heavily outdoor-sports related and he is a regular contributor to Outdoor Life and many other magazines and companies in the hunting and fishing industry. He is the owner of and a photographer for Windigo Images, a Minnetonka, Minnesota-based stock photo agency that specializes in hunting and fishing subjects. Interested in any of these pics?
