About Ted Settle:

Growing up in California, Ted Settle developed a lifelong passion for photography when his parents gave him a Kodak box camera. Transitioning to a Konica 35mm camera in the mid-1960s, his interest blossomed during a trip to Australia in 1999, where he was introduced to professional photography using Canon equipment. Since then, he has remained dedicated to Canon cameras and lenses.

Ted's journey in photography has taken him through diverse landscapes and experiences. From capturing the scenic Delaware and Raritan Canal State Park during his daily commute to documenting travels across Australia, Costa Rica, the Middle East, and beyond, he has explored various terrains and light conditions. Through classes and practical experience, he has honed his craft, building a portfolio that reflects his enduring fascination with nature and culture.

Recently, Ted's focus has shifted to the majestic landscapes of Montana and Wyoming, particularly the Bear Tooth Mountains and Yellowstone. Embracing the challenge of photographing celestial wonders like the Milky Way amidst Montana's dark skies, he continues to evolve as a photographer, capturing the beauty of our world with every click of his shutter.
