Channel Islands National Park and National Marine Sanctuary - California's Galapagos
IM HAUF, Professional Wildlife & Wilderness Photographer, presents "Channel Islands National Park and National Marine Sanctuary - California's Galapagos" (also the name of his newest book with text by Catherine French and foreword by Jean-Michael Cousteau) at C&F's photo-networking dinner. California's Channel Islands host an array of unique plant and animal species, archeological sites, and wild and rugged landscapes shaped by millions of years of weather changes and raging winds and seas. All levels of photography enthusiasts and non-photographers are welcomed.
Tim Hauf is dedicated to creating a better understanding and appreciation of the world around us through pictures. His photos have appears in respected publications around the globe including Islands, Sunset, Smithsonian, Terre Sauvage, South Africa Times, National Geographic and many more. Tim has made 100's of trips to Channel Islands National Park and the Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary, capturing the wonders of the wilderness, rare and endemic species of plants, birds, land and sea mammals. The park and sanctuary hold a special appeal for Tim - so close to the highly populated California mainland, yet a world apart with each island as well as the surrounding ocean environment holding their own unique qualities.
Growing up on a grain farm and the wide-open prairies of North Dakota gave Tim Hauf an appreciation of the outdoors and nature. His wanderlust started when he was two years old, often wandering across cow pastures accompanied only by his dog. He would go home with lots of stories about what he had found. In later years, he started taking photos of where he had been and of what he had experiences, so he could "show and tell" others of his experiences. After graduating from North Dakota State university with a degree in business, Tim moved to California and found work as a financial analyst. With the outdoors beckoning, Tim left his career as a financial analyst and moved to Ventura County in the late 1970s. He found himself working as a ranch foreman, giving him enough time to take up photography, honing his skills ever since.
Tim Hauf has been a professional photographer since the early 1990s. His photographs have been featured in numerous publications throughout the world, including Islands, Sunset, Asia Pacific Travel, Mini-World (Japan), Explore (Canada), Terre Savage (France), Dove (Italy), South Africa Times, USA Today, National Geographic, and Smithsonian. His list of published books include unique destinations such as the Himalaya of Nepal; South America's remote Patagonia; the rugged wilderness of northern Manitoba, Canada; South Africa's remarkable World Heritage Sites; Ventura County; and Channel Islands National Park. In additional to having his work displayed in numerous solo and group exhibitions, Tim's work is also part of the permanent art collection at Santa Barbara's Cottage Hospital. He is available for private workshops (group or individual) to destinations around the world. He is frequently asked to judge photography competitions.
