Dwight is a fine art photographer and 14 time Emmy Award winner with a decades long career in broadcast television with NBC. He was born in central Illinois and earned a degree in Radio and Television from Southern Illinois University. His lifelong passion for photography has taken him to the top of skyscrapers, to the bottom of the Grand Canyon and even onto the field with the Dallas Cowboys. Dwight is a popular digital photography instructor with Texas Christian University (TCU) and leads sold out photography classes and workshop.
In his role as a photography professor, Dwight came to Jackson Hole and hired Jackson Hole Wildlife Safaris guides to take him and his students out to see the stunning wildlife and iconic landscapes of Grand Teton National Park. Already a very skilled photographer, a new passion to pursue was ignited in Dwight by the beauty and thrill of the wildlife and wildness of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. He began spending his summers with his camera in the Jackson Hole area, which is where all of his photos available at Gallery Wild are from.
Dwight also has a passion for sharing the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem with people not only through his photography, but also through experiences. Dwight has now been a guide for Jackson Hole Wildlife Safaris leading wildlife safaris, photography workshops and private photography trips since 2015.
