About Us

Hi, we're Ric and Vicky Kessler. We're located outside of Ormond Beach on the central east coast of Florida. We are constantly encouraging each other to go shoot more photographs. Traveling together makes it that much easier to be away from the many chores found on our small ranch.

Casey, our son, also shoots his share of images using an array of Nikon products. We are always amazed at the quality of photographs with which he returns and the stamina he exhibits when traveling with a group of photographers. He insists that he can focus faster using manual focus rather than auto focus and normally his images are tack sharp. Casey has gotten so many magical images that they are now incorporated into the galleries viewed on this site.  Almost 24 he has found a career as a merchant marine which allows him time to divert all his resources to custom truck design when he is on land.

Together we have traveled throughout North America and Europe visiting many of the magical places preserved for wildlife and the ecosystems that control its growth. We are always seeking out new places to visit and continue to return to many of the previously visited areas only to find many new and exciting adventures.  As this new version of our website is published Vicky will retire from teaching and we will head out on the road in our 35 foot RV towing our jeep to find and make new images throughout North America. 

We invite you to view the images of our travels into nature and contact us with any questions. In addition, we invite you to visit our friends at the following resources:
