My name is Steve Creek, and I am an Arkansas-based Nature and Wildlife Photographer. My specialty and passion for my photography is for the wildlife found throughout Arkansas and Oklahoma. I spend many hours each week in the outdoors and travel to many areas throughout these two states.
I enjoy the different National Wildlife Refugees and spend a lot of my time at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma. This refuge is close to where I live and an easy drive. I have spent 20 years experiencing and enjoying this refuge and I know it well.
I bought a cabin next to the Ouachita National Forest a few years ago here in Arkansas. I spend lots of time hiking and exploring this National Forest with my camera. Although I do travel some to other states, most of my photos are taken at these two locations.
I hope that you find my work artistically inspiring; and through my photos, it is my hope that you find the same passion and admiration for the wild as I enjoy each day throughout my nature walks. There truly are not enough hours in the day to capture all the beauty that nature and wildlife has to offer.
