An avid photographer for over two decades, Gary Haines is a native Coloradan currently living in Georgetown with his wife Gay. He has traveled extensively to achieve some of his award-winning photographs, logging countless hours in pursuit of "the perfect shot."
After serving as a firefighter for 32 years with South Metro Fire Rescue, Haines currently spends his time capturing stunning images of Colorado and others from around the world. In addition, his work has been published in "National Wildlife," "Audubon," "Colorado Outdoors," "Outdoor Photographer Magazine," and many more.
His fine art prints can be found at Grizzly Creek Gallery, which he opened more than 16 years ago. Located in the Historic District of Georgetown, Colorado, his gallery also offers custom printing, framing, and much more.
A purist to the end, Gary does not digitally manipulate or enhance his images. Instead, he focuses on four main elements to capture the ideal photograph: patience, light, composition, and behavior. A firm believer in wildlife and wilderness conservation, he donates a portion of all his proceeds to national and local conservation organizations.
