"Nature is my class room, where I strive to turn over every leaf. To photograph every subject that breaths in a natural environment. To teach those who share the love and passion for the great outdoors, just as those who have taught me."
Todd Michael Katke is a very active and dedicated photographer, reaching out for every chance to catch a glimpse of wildlife that may pass the rest of us by. He strives to relay the messages of our world outside to help us better understand and look through his eyes and through the lens of a 35mm camera.
