Idaho Conservation League, Kaniksu Land Trust and the American Heritage Wildlife Foundation are hosting a unique wildlife photography event on February 22, highlighting a retrospective of selected past-to-present images of local photographer Jerry Ferrara’s work and anecdotes from the field.

For over 40 years professional wildlife and nature photographer, Ferrara, has explored the environment with camera and lens. Prior to starting his photography business, Ferrara earned a bachelor’s degree in biology (LaVerne College) and a master of science degree in zoology (University of Idaho).

Thirty of those years were spent in conjunction with a career in editorial and stock picture photography and writing. His photos have been published in numerous media both nationally and internationally including: Audubon, BBC Wildlife, Canadian Geographic, GEO (German), International Wildlife, National Geographic, National Wildlife, Natural History, Ranger Rick and The World Wildlife Fund publications. The artist Andy Warhol even chose one of Jerry’s images (the Orangutan) to be included in Warhol’s acclaimed The Endangered Species screen print series.

Ten years ago Ferrara changed his business direction and began working exclusively with his film image bank, as well as digital captures, to produce fine-art photographic prints. You can view his incredible work on his website at FerraraWildlifePhotography.com, as well as Cedar Glen Gallery, 300 N. First Avenue, Suite 1, in downtown Sandpoint.

This event will take place on February 22, 2019 with shows at 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. at the Panida’s Little Theater, 304 N. First Ave., Sandpoint. Tickets are $5 each, and can be purchased online using the form through Kaniksu Land Trust website.
