I’m the owner and operator of Pronghorn Productions, a full-service nature and wildlife company. My primary pursuit is collecting and selling stock footage, most of which is on my website HDNatureFootage I also write and publish books about wildlife.
My Wildlife Footage
After receiving a M.S. degree in Wildlife Sciences I worked 30 years as a wildlife biologist, primarily with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the National Park Service. During that time I conducted numerous wildlife studies and published scores of scientific papers (see bottom of this page) and wrote or co-edited several books.
I also started my own nature and wildlife production company Pronghorn Productions. Now retired from the federal government, I work full time collecting nature and wildlife stock footage from around the world, which I sell primarily thru HDNatureFootage.net. A few short demo videos are shown below with a larger collection at WildlifeFootage.net.
If you need nature and wildlife stock footage, or an author or researcher on wildlife studies, please contact me.
