My Photography Is A Mosaic Of Me...
Randy C. Anderson is a photographer, writer, outdoorsman, naturalist, and passionate about wildlife and nature photography. His study of wildlife began when he was a boy and kept growing as the years went by. He started hunting at age eight, then started hunting with a camera in his early twenties. He became serious about his photography in the 1970s, and his passion for photography continues. His passion includes teaching photography on the high school level at Regent Preparatory School of Oklahoma in Tulsa. Randy's photography includes fashion, food, products, travel, and outdoor sports. His work in those areas has appeared in magazines, newspapers, advertising, marketing pieces, websites, social media, and other electronic media. He has published four books: Dancing With Butterflies, a book devoted to the butterflies of Oklahoma. The Mother Road – Route 66 In Oklahoma, covers the entire length of the highway that still exists in the state. Oklahoma Lights, highlighting some of Oklahoma's beautiful and unique Christmas light displays. The Way I See It, was his first book, a book about the wildlife of Oklahoma. The books are currently out of print and Randy is working on new eBooks that will incorporate many updates.
In addition, Randy has had over forty-five articles he has written and illustrated with images published in Distinctly Oklahoma Magazine as a fairly regular contributor. Those works featured wildlife, travel, outdoor, and topics relating to Oklahoma. Sadly, the magazine has closed its doors, as have many other publications across the country.
Officially retired, Randy continues to follow his passion for wildlife photography, especially birds. He and his wife Lisa have been avid birders for over forty years, and they manage a somewhat elaborate set of bird feeding stations around their home in the Tulsa area. In the eight short years since moving to the Tulsa area, they have documented over seventy-five species of birds visiting their gardens and feeders. Other frequent visitors include squirrels, possums, raccoons, three varieties of rat snakes, a western ribbon snake, cottontail rabbits, grey tree frogs, evening bats, and a host of insects — Randy always has something to shoot! Well, they do have a certified wildlife habitat for a yard.
