Two of the most prolific nature photographers of our time, D. Robert Franz and his wife, Lorri, have amassed an extenstive collection of nature images from all over the world, totaling over 150,000 images. Within Dale and Lori's collection, you will find images of wolves, siberian tigers, snow leopards, bald eagles, and many more species of wildlife, all in their natural habitats.
When our staff first reviewed Dale and Lorri's work for inclusion on Profotos, we were taken back by the absolutely stunning quality and exciting compositions in their images. The opening image in their portfolio of the wolf in motion is one of our staff favorites. Excellent panning, and wonderful, tight composition make this image what it is - the awesome power of wildlife in its raw form.
This image and many others await for your enjoyment within Dale and Lori's Profotos portfolio. If the beauty and mystery of nature appeals to you, then you need to see this portfolio. It is without question, among the very best in the world!,"Lorri and I have been internationally known photographers of the natural world for over 15 years.
