Gura Gear Brand Ambassador Mike Darter
Mike Darter is a photographic artist with the natural world as his preferred subject. Moreover, he has studied and documented wildlife as well as wild spaces since he was a young boy, growing up in Oklahoma.
In addition, Darter has led wildlife and nature photo tours for the past eight years. He has done so for Aaron’s Tours, based in Seattle, Washington.
What’s more, “his images teach us about our natural world through the connective emotions that we share when we see something from his vision,” the company added.
“Photography is an incredible art that in our modern world has the ability to change our thoughts, our politics, our opinions; and in Mike’s hands, change our hearts. You can see the resilience and struggle in the eyes of a bison trying to survive winter in Yellowstone. Or the strength and vulnerability in a silverback in the extreme mountains of war–torn central Africa. The incredible beauty of a ridgeline in the Tetons. Mike’s talents bring these to our own eyes.”
Darter’s Gura Gear bag of choice is the Kiboko backpack. “It is the only backpack I can fit my 400mm f/2.8 or 500mm f/4 on a body, along with a second camera and the 70–200mm f/2.8, another lens, a GoPro and more, and still fit it in the overhead of any plane,” explained Darter.
