About the Park

Meet the Photographer

Kathleen Reeder

“I have always had a camera in my hands, taking photographs of family, friends, vacation, any opportunity to capture the moment. My big “aha moment” was in 2009, while in Grand Tetons National Park in Wyoming. Watching the wildlife in the park sparked an obsession for wildlife photography that has been accelerating me ever since. I LOVE observing wildlife behavior, understanding their natural tendencies within their family units, and capturing their beauty and soul in a photograph.”
