Photographers Bill & Marty Welch are passionate about wildlife, and the wild places where they live. They have traveled to many remote locations, including photographing snowy owls on the windswept Saskatechwan prairies at minus 40° degrees, Iceland in the winter, and several hundred miles above the Arctic Circle in the Northwest Territories of Canada.
They have traveled over 600 miles on the Amazon River, as well as 414 miles up the Dalton Highway, to the Arctic Ocean, and then out to an island in the Beaufort Sea, to photograph polar bears and the northern lights.
They love photographing birds, especially in flight, and have perfected many of the techniques needed to accomplish this. They have travelled to Homer Alaska for fishing bald eagles, South Texas and Galveston Island for the songbird migration, and British Columbia for the magificent Great Gray Owls.
They also enjoy photographing songbirds, butterflies and other creatures that share their 10 acres, in Caesarscreek Township Ohio, with them.
