Hunter Bridges is a wildlife biologist, nature writer and photographer from the Upstate of South Carolina. He grew up hunting, fishing and trapping throughout the Southeast.
Hunter graduated from Clemson University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Wildlife and Fisheries Biology in 2009. He was shortly thereafter recognized for outstanding service in wildlife damage management by the USDA Wildlife Services and has since spent countless hours working for conservation and environmental awareness by conducting workshops on birding, field botany, urban wildlife habitat enhancement and more.
But his passion for wild places and wild things shows most notably through his photography. From Lowcountry gators to tiny warblers to elusive whitetails, through his lens, Hunter brings us a sense of intense proximity to the subject. A self-taught photographer, Hunter has been a commissioned photographer by Ducks Unlimited, South Carolina Waterfowl Association and South Carolina Department of Natural Resources.
