Collin J Orthner

A passion for photography is a natural for me, when as a child growing up in the prairies and badlands of Alberta spent I spent days exploring nature, geology, geography, and weather. “I was, and still am, enthralled by the grandeur of a prairie thunderstorm, the welcoming song of a meadowlark or the thundering roar of a train coming down the track,” and it's that inquisitive, observant nature that continues to fuel my creative work that resides in private collections across North America and Europe.

My involvement in photography, however, goes well beyond personal explorations. With experience as the staff photographer with the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology , Reynolds-Alberta Museum and other government positions, and with work published worldwide in LIFE, Travel & Leisure, Canadian Geographic, Photo Life, Readers Digest Press (Australia) and Japan Times.
