Project Description


Mitch Kezar is one of the best and most respected outdoor recreation sport photographers in the world with a career going strong for over 50 years.  He is also quite the story teller and loves to share tales of his passion pursuits outdoors.

Twice nominated for the Pulitzer Prize in sport news photography, Mitch has shot beneath the frigid depths of Lake Superior for National Geographic Magazine, trailed presidential candidates for Time and Newsweek magazines, spent days in high country shooting ads for snowmobiles, traveled with natives across Africa and ridden trains across China with peasants and chickens – all in search of the perfect image.

Mitch is a fanatic about wildlife conservation and protection of our natural resources.  It’s entertaining and education as we explore the Wildside of Mitch Kezar.
