Photography With A Purpose

I love nature, wildlife, hiking, and photography. About 20 years ago, I started combining my love of nature and wildlife with photography. I now do my best to capture that "gotcha" moment.  I go out, and I wait…. and with my lens, I capture a moment in time that intrigues the imagination.

In a landscape photograph, I try to compose the scene that will draw the viewer’s eyes into my image, and provide them with an emotional experience. Our ability to compose the photograph for any given moment improves with time, patience and experience.
My photography is a process with a purpose that I am very passionate about. I strive to seek perfection, and can always find things that I can improve upon in my photographs.
I enjoy mentoring others who desire to learn about wildlife and photography. There lies the real satisfaction - giving back and sharing my craft. Bill L. Coulter

08.02.2014. Three Legged Dog and Buckaroos

My photographic journeys sometimes takes me through a local horse stable where I am greeted by the owner – we’ll call him Buck - with a big smile and firm hand shake.  I would describe Buck as a hard working friendly cowboy. He loves horses and animals, loving animals places him close to my heart. I never met an animal I didn’t like, but there are some I highly respect and keep my distance. I will leave it at that.
