Wildlife Photographer by Local Talented Teen
Artist Name: Martin Culpepper
Artist Reception: Sunday, Jan. 26th at 3pm (Martin will perform live music for the reception also).
Martin is sixteen years old and an aspiring wildlife photographer. As a Junior in H.S. he now has his goals set on majoring in Biology at college, hopefully near Wyoming to take advantage of the wildlife in the Yellowstone area. Martin admits to being obsessed with learning about wildlife since his earliest memory and typically spends hours a week walking through local woods and beaches looking for his favorite subjects including bears, owls, raptors, song birds, water birds, moose, deer, weasels, foxes and marine life. Although Wyoming is his favorite place, Martin was fortunate enough to travel to Alaska with his parents this past summer and captured coastal brown bears living off the shore to add to his collection. Martin was recently a finalist in National Geographic Student Expeditions 2019 photo contest.
Through his photos and presentations Martin hopes to inspire people to spend more time outside and to work toward protecting nature & wildlife. In his spare time, Martin is a Boy Scout and enjoys camping, hiking, and fishing. Martin is also a musician and will be playing live music at his reception. Join us this Sunday to see, and support this talented young artist.
