Martin W. Grosnick has been photographing professionally since 1976, first in Alaska, and then widening his interests to East and Southern Africa, and the American Southwest. His latest passions are photographing the other cold weather regions of the world--the High Arctic and Antarctica.

He received his Bachelor and Master degrees in Biology from Northern Michigan University, and has worked in Alaska as a field biologist. Primarily specializing in wildlife, he tries to apply his knowledge of animal behavior to anticipate his subject's actions and interactions, enabling him to capture on film the natural history of each animal for those unable to observe firsthand. And when afield with wildlife, he records natural landscapes witnessed by few.

His photographs have appeared in numerous publications like Alaska, Audubon, Geo, International and National Wildlife, Natural History, Ranger Rick, Science Digest, and Weekly Reader; also in books from National Geographic Society, National Wildlife Federation and Reader's Digest; and in calendars from Audubon, Sierra Club, and World Wildlife Fund.
