    Buddy Eleazer was an active hobby photographer in the 70’s. He became serious about photography with the development of digital camera.  He is known for his landscape and wildlife  photography. Much of his work focuses on African wildlife and North American birds. He goes to Southern Africa and Kenya about 6-8 times a year. He describes himself as a nature photographer who loves both landscape and wildlife.  In terms of photographic style he takes what is considered the safe shot first.  He then looks for tight shots,  panning shots and creative shots. 

    His work has appeared in Popular Photography, National Geographic, and  the Epson Panorama Awards.  Eleazer leads small tour groups through Magnum Excursions. http://www.magnumexcursion.com
