Welcome to Natural World Photography!  Professional nature photographer and wildlife artist, James Stachecki has been photographing nature for over 20 years with the goal of increasing public awareness of endangered animals and habitats.  He has won numerous photography awards and his photographs have been published in some of the top photography magazines including: Nature Photographer, Peterson's Photographic, Nature's Best, and Birder's World.  

Please take the time to view some of the landscape and wildlife photographs in the gallery.  Aspiring photographers can explore the various photographic workshops, photography classes, private photographic lessons with film and digital SLR cameras that are offered.  Photography classes are available for entry level photographers as well as the more advanced nature photographer.  A digital photography class is available, as well as digital imaging Adobe Photoshop classes.  

Centrally located in Linden New Jersey, James is close to the Catskill mountains in New York, the Pocono's in  Pennsylvania, and the Jersey shore.  Therefore, ample opportunities abound to pursue nature photography.  Check out the day-long photographic workshops that are offered and improve your skills as a photographer.  

James has hundreds of nature and wildlife photographs that are available for all your stock photography needs.  Please contact me for more information on purchasing images for stock photography purposes.   

If you are a fan of fine art or just like a pleasing picture, a variety of landscape photographs & wildlife photographs  are available as limited edition prints or limited edition canvas prints.  Take some time and look around the gallery as images are updated regularly.  

Thanks for stopping by, and please let me know if I can help you out by answering any of your photography related questions.
