Northeastern Nevada Featured Artist

Mark Hayward

Mark Hayward’s intellectual and  creative energy was captured by the science and art of photography early in his life. He found his passion when he began photographing nature and then by honing his skills and continuing to focus on improving his technical print making techniques.

Mark tells us that as each print materializes, he visualizes the image in a very tangible way, that is both durable and collectable. Mark Hayward believes that in order to fully appreciate the enduring quality of a well-captured wildlife image, it should be viewed in print form. This is why he enjoys the challenges of printing and presentation. All of Mark’s prints are created by himself in his Spring Creek studio.

Mark’s work is recognized internationally. His art has been featured in many exhibits. Publications include National Geographic Magazine, North American Nature Photographer’s Association , the National Wildlife Federation publication, Range Magazine. He was a featured speaker this March at Shooting the West Symposium, and has shown work in Western Folklife Wiegand Gallery, and Elko’s Northeastern Nevada Museum.

Wildlife photography is Mark Hayward’s favorite photographic genre. “How fortunate I am to live in such a beautiful land and share it with all kinds of wildlife.” Protecting wildlife and habitat is an essential responsibility.
