Connect —



I’m an photographer of wildlife based in Chicago, Illinois.  

It's my hope that you will connect with the intelligence, personality and dignity of these amazing creatures and will be inspired to help protect them and their habitat for generations to come.   

I use photography to raise awareness and often donate my images to such causes. If you have a project/program that is geared toward conservation and would like the rights contact me via FB messenger https://www.facebook.com/shannonhinsonwitz
