Donald M. Jones align= Award-winning wildlife photographer Donald M. Jones has called Montana home for over thirty-six years. An obsession that began as a young boy with binoculars swaying from his neck and a bird book wedged in his back pocket, off to find adventure where he could in suburban Chicago, eventually drew Don to the vast wilderness of Montana. Here, his overwhelming passion for the outdoors and photography led to living his dream as a full-time wildlife photographer since 1993. His work has taken him from the Artic to the deserts, from the swamps to the mountains, and everywhere in between - but his first love is for his home state, wonderfully diverse in its abundant wildlife and habitats.

All of Don's wildlife subjects are just that - wild - never confined to zoos or game farms. His work is authentic and his message is true to his heart, "Keep the wild in wildlife."

Don's work has been featured in a variety of publications including eleven photography books, over 800 magazine covers, with clients such as BBC, Sierra, Audubon, Field & Stream, Outdoor Life, National Wildlife, Ranger Rick, and Canadian Geographic, to name just a few.

Don resides in the small northwestern Montana town of Troy with Tess, his wife and best friend.
