The name “The Hole Picture” was inspired  by Daryl L. Hunter’s muse of light and subject which was born of the embarrassment of riches that is Jackson Hole Wyoming. As the decades roll by Daryl’s muse has expanded to include the world.

When I was a wander lusting young man I would often find myself in beautiful places, so I bought a camera so I could document my wanderlust.1n 1987 I packed up my view camera, medium format camera, and my 35-millimeter cameras and headed to Jackson Hole Wyoming, one of the best places on earth to be an outdoor photographer. 

Today I lead photography tours and workshops in Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks as well as other destinations both in the USA and abroad. I have been hired to speak about photography in Europe, Asia and Oceana. Photography has opened up the world for me.
My photography, wildlife video, and feature stories have been published by Passion Planet, National Geographic, Audubon, Outside Magazine, Snow Country, Outdoor life, Esquire Sports, New York Dailey News, Outdoor Photographer Magazine, U.S.A. Today, San Francisco Magazine, Musher Magazine, Mother Jones, Time Magazine, Mule Deer Foundation Magazine, Muley Crazy, International Wolf Magazine, Fly-fisherman, Idaho Magazine, Western Byways, Wyoming Lifestyle, and Bugle Magazine etc. As a stock photographer my photographs have been published all over the world.

Photography has more payoffs than money. Long before finding commercial success I found photography drove me to search out pretty places or to scrupulously dissect my existing surroundings to find magical light. This quest drew me to seek out beautiful things even in adverse conditions. Wherever we go with our photographer’s eye, we are looking for a beautiful rectangle we can isolate out of the chaos of life, when you are always seeking beauty, you will find more than your share ~ that is rich!
