Twice nominated for the Pulitzer Prize in spot news photography, photographer Mitch Kezar has shot in the frigid depths of Lake Superior for National Geographic Magazine, trailed presidential candidates across the country for Time and Newsweek magazines, spent days in sub-zero temperatures 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.
As a young lad armed with his mother's Kodak Brownie, Mitch would stalk animals with the camera on their northern Minnesota dairy farm, capturing them on film for 4-H photography projects. Today, Mitch is shooting more than ever, for publications, national media, and private parties interested in the very best in moment capture.
Capitalizing on skills honed during a 15-year career as a photojournalist, he works to craft unforgettable images that tell stories and convey emotions.
Today his work is heavily outdoor-sports related. He is a regular contributor to Outdoor Life, Field & Stream, American Hunter, Bowhunting World, Sporting Classics and many other hunting and fishing industry publications. His work is regularly featured in ads for Remington, Cabela's, Leupold, Bushnell, Nikon, North American Hunter, Federal Cartridge, Mathews Archery and others. Corporate clients include BASF, Rockwell, FEDEX, Meredith Publishing.
He is the founder of Windigo Images, a Minnetonka, Minnesota-based stock photo agency, the world's largest image library specializing in hunting, fishing and outdoor subjects. He lives in Delano, Minnesota, with his tired ol' Labrador Retriever Parker, and two crazy Jack Russell Terriers, Aussie and Kelvin. His two sons, Ben and Nick, serve on active duty in the United States Marine Corps and the United States Army, respectively. Both have served recently in war zones overseas.
