Artist Victoria McCormick
Victoria McCormick's profound love and respect for all creatures began when she was a child working on her family's dairy farm. It was here she developed the patience, dedication, and ability to work long hours in the harshest of weather - all prerequisites for becoming the successful wildlife photographer she is today.
Victoria's photographs are internationally published in works by the National Geographic Society, World Wildlife Fund, New York Times, Outdoor Life, Time Magazine, and numerous others. Many of her images derive from the three and a half months she spent on remote wildlife refuges in Hawaii's Northwestern Islands photographing for a book to honor the endangered Hawaiian Monks Seals. Some islands were just a sliver of sand. Her only neighbors were Monk seals basking on the beaches with their pups, green sea turtles returning to lay their eggs, and tens of thousands of seabirds raising their young.
From innumerable photographs taken over years exploring the Hawaiian Archipelago and beyond, Victoria carefully selects only the most special moments in time - moments that carry us to the pristine places that sooth our soul.
