"I have always felt it was worse to never do something because I was afraid to do it, than to do it and fail." Pat Toth-Smith
California artist Pat Toth-Smith, is a fine art Wildlife/ Nature Photographer with more than 20 years of professional experience. Her photos have sold in numerous markets, prestigious galleries and hundreds of fine art shows and festivals in the western United States. Her popular award-winning book, Wild Among Us presents "true adventures of a female photographer who stalks bears, wolves, mountain lions and other elusive wildlife." A second book is in the works.
“My photographs and stories are meant to help reestablish a connection with nature/wildlife and maybe inspire others to get out into the wilderness more often. When photographing, I try to capture the animal’s expressions with a bit of reverence and humor. Frequently, I am drawn to the overall aesthetic of a wildlife scene, not just the drama that may be occurring at its center. My focus is less about getting the action shot and more about making the wildlife feel comfortable in my presence. I try to convey the connection of the wildlife to its environment.”
Pat maintains an extensive inventory on her website TothSmithPhotography.com
