Kevin Loughlin founded Wildside Nature Tours in 1993 to share his love of birds, nature, travel and photography with others. Before that, Kevin owned and managed camera stores on the East Coast, where he began his love of teaching photography.
Raised to appreciate nature, Kevin grew up exploring the woodlands of eastern Pennsylvania, with a camera in his hands since age 6… when in 1968 his family took a month-long trip through the American West and he was given a hand-me-down Minolta A5 35mm camera. By age 10, Kevin had camped with his family in all of the Lower 48 states and much of Canada!
Kevin’s photographs have appeared in numerous publications like Birding Magazine, WildBird Magazine, Nature Photography, Outdoor Photographer and Living Bird. Most recently he had more than a dozen images published in “Peterson’s Reference Guide to Owls of North America and the Caribbean.” One of his current projects in progress is working with author John Kricher to update his book “Galapagos: A Natural History.”
