Speaker line-up

Moose Peterson


Who doesn’t look up when they hear the sound of a plane? There is something about flight that grabs our imagination, and that adrenaline rich, action packed thrill ride is why it's the fastest growing genre of photography. The speed, sounds and smells are intoxicating and when combined with that image in your camera, you are hooked! 

In Moose's opinion, photography is all about writing with light and this process takes on a whole new level with aircraft. Join Moose as he takes the audience into the skies and briefs on all things aviation photography; how he brings motion to still images, romance to pieces of steel and tells a story that grabs attention.


Moose’s lifelong passion is photographing the life history of our endangered wildlife and wild places. Since 1981 he and his wife Sharon have dedicated their lives to this pursuit. Educating the public about our wild heritage is their hallmark. Moose added to this in 2008 aviation photography with the same goal of preserving our aviation heritage and the freedoms they protect, pictorial and oral for future generations. 
Along the way Moose has been honored for his photographic passion: a Nikon Ambassador USA, recipient of the John Muir Conservation Award, Research Associate with the Endangered Species Recovery Program, just to name a few. He was part of Epson’s Finish Strong ad campaign. Moose was the creative producer/photographer of his acclaimed film: Warbirds and The Men Who Flew Them. He shares his knowledge through his writing, being published in over 143 magazines worldwide, author of 29 books including his latest, Takeoff and best seller Captured. He lectures across the country to thousands upon thousands of photographers every year. 

One of the original Nikon shooters to receive the D1 in 1999, Moose embraced this new technology, becoming the only wildlife photographer in the world to shoot strictly digital in the early years. While a beta site for all the major hardware and software manufacturers, Moose continues being a creative innovator of new techniques both behind the camera and the computer, which is the driving force behind his photography and goals.
