About Meg Sommers Photography
I have been an outdoor enthusiast since early childhood. A resident of the Cody, Wyoming area now for over 45 years, my love for the outdoors just keeps growing stronger. Cody is only 52 miles from Yellowstone National Park and I spend, on average, a total of 10-12 weeks there every year. In fact, every chance I get!
My photography covers the full spectrum from landscapes and wildlife to flowers. Forty years of watching and learning about wildlife have made me an enthusiastic naturalist and photography helps me share my enthusiasm with you. Shooting seriously for over 20 years now has allowed me to create a large, diverse body of work.
Since 2010, I have also had the great honor and privilege to teach Wildlife Photography at the Yellowstone Association/Forever Institute, and the Road Scholar program all within YNP.
While I like to photograph a wide variety of subjects, my passion is to photograph and tell the stories of wildlife. I have traveled worldwide to seek out new and interesting opportunities to do so. I have found fascinating wildlife behavior from as far north as 130 miles north of the Arctic Circle in Alaska and as far east as the wilds of the Okavango Delta in Botswana and the Masa Mara of Kenya.
Twice published in National Geographic and I have also been honored as a grand prize winner of the annual Wyoming Wildlife competition. Most recently I was awarded the grand prize in the 2022 Outdoor Photographer Magazine Wildlife contest. In addition, I have been featured as a naturalist and professional photographer in a 15-minute video aired on French television about Yellowstone National Park.
When not in Yellowstone National Park, I try to stay busy as a loving wife, local attorney, part-time judge, photography instructor, and community volunteer.
