“Nature photography has been a passion and an avocation of mine for over forty years,” states Marv Binegar. He has photographed North America from the shores of the Arctic Ocean to the deserts of the Southwest, and from the Pacific Ocean to the Missouri River. His images appear in magazines, books, and on the pages of calendars.  This is an opportunity to meet the photographer and hear his stories about photographing bear cubs, bison on the run, and a moose staring down the camera lens.

Binegar began working for the National Park Service in the summer of 1966 just as the Park Service was celebrating 50 years.

His primary career was as a middle school teacher and, later, he was a middle school principal.  But he worked as an National Park Service summer seasonal ranger several times during his teaching career.  After he retired from education services, he became a full-time employee at Fort Vancouver National Historic Site from 2005 until 2012.  

Between travels and photo shoots, Binegar lives in Oregon City, and serves as an active volunteer for Meals On Wheels. He is a frequent visitor to the McLoughlin House Unit of Fort Vancouver National Historic Site, located in Oregon City.
