Cathy and Gordon Illg have been full time nature photographers since 2000. Their work is widely published and includes numerous covers of magazines like Backpacker, Defenders, National Geographic Kids, Ranger Rick and National Wildlife. Several of their images decorate the tails of Frontier Airlines’ jets, and they’ve done well in photo contests, the highlight of which was being flown to London to accept awards in the Wildlife Photographer of the Year Contest. They were recognized for their work with endangered species in Canon’s Wildlife As Canon Sees It ad in National Geographic. Both of their first two books, Dynamic Wildlife Photography and Worshiping With A Camera, have been well received, and for the past 22 years their livelihood has been dependent upon their ability to share the magic of wild things and wild places with other photographers.
