Feathers and Talons

This collection of images represents the bald eagles that come down into the Great Plains states during the winter months. They capture many stages of the eagle’s life, from being an eaglet in a nest, through the juvenile stage, into adulthood.

Souvenirs
Jeff Hetler  |  Boardroom and Balcony Galleries

Souvenirs: The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines the word Souvenir as something that is kept as a reminder of a place you have visited, an event you have been to, etc. The dictionary further notes that in Australian slang the word souvenir means to steal or keep for one’s own use; to purloin. Both definitions apply to my work.

I didn’t pick up my first “real” camera until I was 19 years old. Since that time though, I have never once been tempted to put cameras down or stop shooting photos. I’ve been lucky enough to spend my entire professional career as a corporate photographer but I have continued to create images for myself throughout it all. I did the first to make money to support my family and myself but I did the latter to help me keep my sanity. Even after all these years I’m happy to say that I’ve never lost the joy of holding a camera in my hands or my love of seeing the world through a camera viewfinder.
