Hello, my name is Clay Guthrie and I am a nature & wildlife photographer from East Prairie Missouri. I'm happily married to my best friend LaChrista and we have a perfect two-year-old daughter named Paisley. I enjoy photographing everything from wildlife to landscapes, railroads and even the night sky.
I picked up a camera for the first time in 2015 and began taking photos of trains . From there I began photographing the buildings and landscapes that were near the tracks. As my interest in landscape photography grew I began seeking out better opportunities which led me to some of the most rural parts of the area. After getting my first telephoto lens I began photographing wildlife at local conservation areas, wildlife refuges and all that fell in between. In my relatively short time in photography I have been blessed to have sold prints and won awards with my photos, but the greatest thing I have gained is a love for nature and being outside.
I hope that my photography can inspire people to appreciate the beauty in the world around them, and to better understand how our actions as a society impact ecosystems and lives that we often can't even see. Take a look at my photos and contact me if you're interested in purchasing a photo or if you just want to say hello.
