For over forty years, professional wildlife and nature photographer, Jerry 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 chose one of Jerry’s images (the Orangutan) to be included in Warhol’s acclaimed The Endangered Species screen print series.

Jerry is a professional member of ASMP (American Society of Media Photographers).

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. He uses Nikon cameras and glass, and creates all final print products himself using professional-grade printers.

Jerry’s work may be viewed on his website at www.FerraraWildlifePhotography.com, as well as Cedar Glen Gallery, 300 North First Avenue, Suite 1, in downtown Sandpoint. The Gallery is operated by his wife, Vicki, and is beginning the seventh year at its current location, tenth year in Sandpoint.

On Friday February 22nd, Jerry will give a presentation at the invitations of the Kaniksu Land Trust, The American Heritage Wildlife Foundation and the Idaho Conservation League in the Little Panda Theater, Sandpoint, Idaho. The title of the show is Wild Creatures I Have Known. It is a retrospective of selected past-to-present images of the photographer’s work and anecdotes from the field.
