I have been the Senior Photographer for the South Dakota Department of Tourism and State Development since 1993. That means I travel the entire state making South Dakota pictures of festivals, historic sites, landscapes, wildlife, visitor attractions, etc. My photographs have appeared in many publications including National Geographic Traveler, books on the rock band KISS, and exhibited at the National Museum of Wildlife Art. I also love movies and their history, especially those filmed in South Dakota.
Unless otherwise noted, the photography you see here is by me and most comes from the files of my employer, the South Dakota Department of Tourism. This blog is in no way affiliated with or supported by South Dakota Tourism or the State of South Dakota. Opinions and observations presented here are strictly the work of the blog's author.
Many of these photos are available for promoting South Dakota or travel here. You may contact South Dakota Tourism to find out how. Do not use without permission.
