The Jim Stamates Photography
Recognized as a prominent wildlife photographer, Jim Stamates, has been creating photographic images for more than 30 years. Since 1980 he has focused his talents on the photography and preservation of our natural surroundings.
For Jim, respect for wildlife takes precedence over “getting the shot”. His philosophy is rewarded by a unique intimacy with his subjects. Dedicated to proper and ethical behavior toward nature, Jim champions his “low impact field techniques” that emphasize the well being of the subject. These techniques enable him to create stunning images of wild lives in their natural habitat.
The study, the observation, and the photograph, are SECOND to the well being of the subject! It is my desire to inspire you, the viewer, to take responsibility to protect and preserve wild lives and wild lands” – Jim Stamates
