Hunter Bridges is a wildlife biologist and nature photographer from the Piedmont 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. He was shortly thereafter recognized for outstanding service in wildlife damage management by the SC USDA Wildlife Services, and over the years he has spent countless hours working in conservation and conducting workshops on everything from birding to field botany.

But his passion for wild places and wild things shows most notably through his photography. Through his lens, Hunter’s knowledge of nature and uncanny knack for getting close brings us images of intense proximity to everything from Lowcountry gators to tiny warblers to elusive whitetails. A self-taught photographer, Hunter has been commissioned by Ducks Unlimited, SC Waterfowl Association and SC Department of Natural Resources.
