Mark Wastler is an amateur photographer from Olathe, KS. He graduation from KU in 1983 with a printmaking major. nature has always fascinated him, and it evokes some of his earliest memories growing up in Quincy, IL, along the bluffs of the Mississippi River. When Mark Twain wrote The Adventures of Tom Sawyer in 1876, he could have easily been writing about some of Mark's childhood adventures.
Three years ago he decided to purchase a camera and start photographing wildlife images so that others may enjoy what his eyes have seen. If he could inspire one person to love nature with the same intensity that he does, then he counts his efforts as worth it.
