This photo of mine was selected as the cover photo of the Aug./Sept. 2017 issue of National Wildlife Magazine. I am deeply humbled by this honor.

Welcome to Rick Hess Photography. My love of photography has allowed my wife and me to visit some very special places, and as a result, see some spectacular scenery and wildlife. I am happy to share some of my photos here and hope you enjoy looking at them. After viewing, if you think you might be interested in purchasing any, please go to the "contact" page to email me concerning prices, matting and/or framing. Thank you for looking and please check back often as I will be continually adding photos.                                          

**UPDATE** This bison and calf photo of mine, taken in Yellowstone National Park, was selected as the cover photo for the Aug./Sept. 2017 issue of National Wildlife Magazine. It is an extreme honor to have had one of my photos chosen for such a prestigious magazine.
