Eakle Photography by Kurt Eakle

When I started showing my photographs in galleries for sale, people would constantly come up and ask “Where is this? Where is that?”  The crazy thing to me was that almost all of the photos were of local sites less than a half hour from where we were standing.  The area has lots of hidden spots that make for great hiking with a camera.  For those that want to explore, I give tours of the sites and will coach people on taking photos as we hike.   The tours can range from an easy walk to an involved hike crossing back and forth across a local creek to find a hidden waterfall.

Whether you’ve never been to the Baraboo Hills, or you grew up around here, I invite you to join me on a hike with your camera.

Kurt has always loved photography. One day, the opportunity to switch from "beloved hobby" to "no, this isn't really work" presented itself. Kurt took it!

There's no turning back now, with his own large-format photo printer, multiple cameras, and enough hard drive storage to hold all his work, Kurt is doing something he loves.  And who knew that cameras were really exercise equipment?
