Anthony Galván III

His photography and illustrative work has been published in newspapers, magazines, and galleries in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. In 1975 his photographs were the first ever accepted by the National Cowboy Hall of Fame of Norman OK.

Galván has a B.A. in Photojournalism from Colorado State University and an M.A. in Mass Communications from the University of Colorado. A strong love of the outdoors comes from working for the Colorado Outward Bound School. In addition, his hobbies of flying, fishing, kayaking, scuba and astronomy have helped him "see" beyond the camera. His photographic skills were honed while working as a scientific photographer for the National Center for Atmospheric Research
