My name is Allen R Hartman, a retired professional photographer specializing in landscapes and wildlife. Now, I occasionally plan trips to national parks and other wilderness areas to take shots. I used to be an avid mountaineer, relishing the great outdoors as much for their own sake as I do to get the perfect shot.

Brooklyn born and bred, I currently reside in an apartment next to my son Anthony’s place. My wife Teri and I are frequently called to babysit our grandkids.
