Mike Shipman - I'm a self-taught photographer with a B.S. in wildlife biology. I worked in the wildlife field for the Colorado State Parks system, Denver Museum of Natural History, US Fish & Wildlife Service, National Forest Service, and private consulting. I broke from the rigid box of science to further explore my interests in art and science because I can't be locked into a certain path. I like to explore them all. That applies to my preferences in subject matter. My interests are broad and varied, from landscapes to automobiles, industry to environmental. In 2010, I was selected to the Idaho Commission on the Arts Teaching Artist Directory. The ICA provides grant opportunities for schools and nonprofit organizations to bring in artists for residency programs. Please contact me for details or visit the Idaho Commission on the Arts for more information.
