Moose Henderson is an award-winning wildlife photographer, scientist, and conservationist. In his youth, he operated a traditional photographic studio doing portraits, weddings, pets, aerials, and commercial/industrial photography.
Photographing people was not a passion so he focused his attention on wild animals. He has photographed wildlife and nature throughout North America, Europe, and Asia. He spent two years in Siberia photographing endangered cranes, storks, and other wildlife.
As a scientist with a doctorate specializing in moose ecology, a master’s in wildlife biology, and a bachelor’s in environmental geology, he uses his knowledge of animals and animal behavior to capture their true essence. He describes his style of photography as “visceral.” Using eye contact, perceived danger, light, color, or atmospheric moods, he seeks to produce images that evoke an emotional response.
His images are handled by stock agencies (Alamy, Windigo Images, and Getty) with over 11,000 published credits in some of the most prestigious periodicals. Published credits include National Geographic, Smithsonian, Outdoor Photographer, and many others.
Moose lived in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem near Jackson, Wyoming for a couple of years. He frequently travels to other locations around North America, Europe, and Asia for dynamic photographic images. Moose is a member of the North American Nature Photographers Association (NANPA), Professional Photographers of America (PPA), Art Association of Jackson Hole (AAJH), Teton Photographic Group, and the Shoot to Care Campaign for ethical wildlife photography.
