Jim Salge is a nature photographer with a deep-rooted appreciation for nature and the wilderness, which has manifested itself into numerous outdoor pursuits. Based in southern New Hampshire, he has long enjoyed hiking, fly fishing, mountain biking, and cross country skiing — all activities that naturally complement outdoor photography. Jim began taking pictures while working as a meteorologist at the Mount Washington Observatory, and though he now works as a high school science teacher in Bedford, NH, the White Mountains remain a focus of his photography. He will often begin before dawn, and stay out after sunset, immersing himself in the natural environment. Jim actively researches his subjects, and often returns to locations again and again to find the conditions that will best bring a connection with scene to the viewer. Please enjoy this collection of Jim’s photographs celebrating the beauty of the White Mountains in winter.

Jim shoots with a digital SLR camera, but makes extensive use of filters when shooting to control the light during difficult exposure. He finds great joy in traditional techniques and strives to get the exposure right in camera, and to process the image to the most natural look possible.
