I (Kay Scheurer Steele) am the other half of this photography work. I grew up in Minnesota where at an early age a young girl is easily captivated by the lonely call of a loon on a north woods lake. I think most people who knew me then thought I’d major in music in college. Nature won out,  and that led to studies in biology and a degree from the University of Notre Dame.

Joining Terry in 1997, my life sciences education complimented Terry’s passionate pursuit of photo subjects in the field. (I still love music, and Terry can sing pretty well, so he brought something special to me, too!)

Together, we are driven to produce quality wildlife photographs of an impressive breadth and depth. Until recent years, most of my contributions have been the digital processing and managing of images, the development of this website and the fine art printing of our photos. My first solo photography efforts include the slideshows about the Wild Mustangs of Steens Mountain and Malheur in May – 2015. Since that time we have worked as a photographing team in the field.
