Shop handcrafted works from small businesses! Meet Lynn Starnes of Great Wildlife Photos at the Sierra Arts Festival June 25 & 26, from10am-5pm. “As an ecologist, I worked for 38 years with wildlife doing research or field studies or managing them. Ecologists cannot “retire” because they live and breathe to be in the out-of-doors. Great Wildlife Photos’ customers benefit from my drive to learn more about animals. I love to provide photo tours so that many customers can see antelope, coyotes or wild horses for the first time in the local Reno area. The advantage of being a biologist first and a photographer second is my knowledge of animal behavior and habitats. I see animals I am studying eating, sleeping, in their mating rituals, and even playing. Most tourists who visit wild lands rarely have the time to let animals acclimate to their presence, so they rarely see animals being wild, natural, relaxed animals. I consider myself to be an “ambush photographer.” …I always joke that I don’t make as much money as a studio photographer, but my animals never complain that I made them look fat. Battle scars on wildlife make them more photogenic!!! In fact, my wild animals are anything but posed! So, I must make my animal photographs through great patience.” ~ Lynn Starnes Visit Sierra Arts Festival, get to know the artists and learn the stories behind each piece they make.
