Charles R. (Chuck) Peterson

I am a zoologist, specializing in amphibians and reptiles. I got into photography during high school to obtain photographs of amphibians and reptiles. Over the years I have photographed for a variety of reasons, but my main subjects have been animals and landscapes, often in support of my research as a professor at Idaho State University. After a trip to East Africa in 2008, I began to concentrate more on photography and started teaching a nature photography course at ISU. As an ecologist committed to the conservation of animals and their habitats, I support the mission of the Sagebrush Steppe Land Trust to “protect, connect, and enhance wildlife habitat, working lands, and community spaces in Southeast Idaho, now and for future generations.” I will provide photographs of SSLT properties and the plants and animals living there, document land trust activities, and help with fundraising.  I hope the photographs will also help the residents of southeast Idaho appreciate the beautiful places where we live, work, recreate.

Examples of my nature photography can be seen on my Flickr photo sharing site:  CLICK HERE
