Rev. Miguel Denyer – Nature & Wildlife Photographer

Hi! My name is Miguel Denyer and I am the founder of Captured Wilderness Nature & Wildlife Photography.

I have always had an interest in wildlife and nature – as a young boy, I used to play in the woods and hillsides of my hometown of Llandovery in Wales, United Kingdom, where I spent many hours discovering nature and the wildlife around me.
Throughout my childhood, my parents instilled in me, a deep and abiding respect, and huge interest for nature which, I have maintained my entire life.

I haven’t always been a photographer – After 8 years service in the British Armed Forces as an Airman in the Royal Air Force, my start down the path of photography came in the late 1990’s, while working as a private sector Personal Security Specialist & Private Investigator. This is where I learned the basics of photography, and back then I had a Minolta Dynax 35mm film SLR with a single telephoto zoom lens (today I have a Canon 7D Mk II and a number of different Sigma lenses including a couple of wide angle landscape lenses, a super telephoto zoom lens, and a 150mm Macro lens – plus a host of different camera ancillaries and different software packages for post-processing work).

I moved to the State of Michigan in the United States back in September of 2001 after meeting my wife, and I have lived here very happily ever since.

It wasn’t until more recently that I got into nature and wildlife photography – I became ill in 2014 after suffering a couple of minor strokes which, forced me to retire from my old profession… Of course, I very quickly grew bored with being out of work and now medically retired, so I decided to put my interest in nature into the pot with my skill in using a camera (although going from film cameras where a dedicated camera store did all my processing – to the digital DSLR format where I now had to learn how to do my own processing in the digital darkroom was a bit of a steep learning curve).

What I discovered was that I have a natural talent for nature and wildlife photography – which brings us to today – I am now a full-time professional wildlife photographer… so there you have it… my life in a nutshell from my youth, through my military years, my start down the path of a photographer and up to today… I hope that the future will bring many more years of enjoyable photography, and many more new friends with which to share my work.

So I hope you like this website and I hope you enjoy my photographic works of art as much as I enjoy producing them.
