David Turko

Welcome! I'm a wildlife photographer at heart and have traveled all over our beautiful country in search of animals in the wild, glorious scenes and visit our national treasures. I have been fortunate enough to encounter some amazing species of wildlife and enjoy them in some of our wonderful national parks. Please browse my galleries and feel free to reach out through the "contact" feature at the bottom of the site. I hope to hear from you and to see you "further on up the road".

2018 Grand Prize Winner for NWF

Very honored to have won the grand prize for the National Wildlife Federations 2018 photo contest! I was on a trip to Bosque Del Apache with good friend John Kim Lowery. A surreal moment when I was photographing this beautiful animal, and then like every photographer does, you check the camera to see what you got. This is what I saw, and later on submitted to NWF.
