Species List for Wild DFW Photos

Photos needed for

Wild Dallas-Fort Worth: Explore the Amazing Nature of North Texas (Timber Press 2022). 

Single-lens reflex cameras only—no cellphone photos.

I’ve still got several hundred submitted photos to go through, but some gaps are becoming evident. So I you can help.

Hard deadline for the book is Sept 15, so it’s an ASAP kind of thing. All photographers are credited and will be featured in what promises to be a vigorous promotional campaign. Happy to provide references for photographers currently involved who can share their positive experiences. Contact me.
