My passion is wildlife photography and the challenge of finding the critters and then capturing them unharmed in digital photographs. While I live in Wisconsin, I have traveled to many of the other US states and several countries, leveraging National Parks and Wildlife Refuges as I look for subjects. All animals shown here were photographed live, and in the wild (unless documented to the contrary). I also enjoy shooting landscapes that focus on natural settings, and on occasion shoot various events. All of my photographs and video productions are copyrighted with all Rights Reserved unless I have provided you with a Copyright Release.

My current website is at JohnHillmer.zenfolio.com but I am working to migrate it to this website.  So for now, to see my wildlife, you might want to go to the zenfolio version of my portfolio.
