Tom and Pat Leeson


Tom and I are a husband and wife team whose photographs appear in hundreds of U.S. and foreign publications each year. Our passion is photographing a single wildlife species in an intimate and in-depth style, recording its key behaviors in every season ending with a complete story package. We have sold photo story packages on grizzlies, black bear, wolves, beaver, badger, mountain goats, and most other North American wildlife. In recent years, we have also focused on international endangered species including: pandas in China, penguins in Antarctica, elephants in Africa, tigers and rhinos in India.
During our 35 years in the field, we have worked on assignment for numerous magazines including: NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC SOCIETY, NATIONAL WILDLIFE FEDERATION, AUDUBON, SIERRA. Our work has also appeared in BBC WILDLIFE, DEFENDERS OF WILDLIFE, READER'S DIGEST, TIME, WORLD WILDLIFE FUND, GEO (U.S., German, and Korean), TERRE SAUVAGE, and DAS TIER.  Some of our corporate clients include Kodak, Nikon, Nike, Inc., Hallmark, American Airlines, Boeing, Chevron, Chrysler and the U.S. Postal Service.
Through our images, we desire to encourage others to be good stewards of this incredible resource--Earth. We make our home in Vancouver, Washington, with our daughter, Laura.
