Roy DuVerger - Freelance Wildlife Photography
Originally from New England, I grew up as part of an outdoors oriented family, spending most of my free time hiking and exploring the backwoods of Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont. I studied the environment and the wildlife, always armed with an SLR and Super 8 movie camera to record my journey. Over the years wildlife photography evolved into my passion.
I am a wildlife conservationist who photographs wildlife, rather than a photographer who chooses wildlife as his subject matter. I do not regard photography as a profession, but rather as a calling: encouraging preservation and conservation through my photographs. My aim is to instill in people the feelings that I get every day when I am out photographing wildlife in its natural environment. I firmly believe that wildlife photographers with a deep love and respect for nature produce the best images, using the camera to capture what they feel.
Currently living in Florida I travel regularly, photographing and shooting video of our amazing wildlife in its natural environment: continually building my library and providing my clients with the most professional services possible.
Although I work as a freelance wildlife photographer, I, like most wildlife photographers, am completely self-taught. I am fortunate to be living in Florida with its large diversity of wildlife, and which provides the perfect gateway for me to travel throughout the Neotropics: a wildlife photographer’s paradise! The extraordinary mix of wildlife, nature and culture makes this area an enviable arena for photographic artistry.
Photography has enriched my life in many ways, but perhaps the greatest benefit of all, is meeting likeminded people who share my love affair with wildlife and find complete fulfillment in shared experiences.
I offer contract, assignment and freelance photography services.
