Four Seasons Photo Tours


Jack Lien 
Owner and Tour Leader


Jack Lien is an accomplished professional photographer and naturalist, with demonstrated expertise in nature and wildlife photography.


Jack has spent over 30 years studying, observing, and learning the behaviors of wildlife and experiencing nature’s wonders while fine-tuning his photographic skills.


His approach to nature photography is knowing when, where, and how to capture the ultimate image while always expecting the unexpected and accepting the premise; nothing comes easily, without perseverance and the willingness to learn from our experiences with nature. 


  • “Is anything more rewarding than witnessing the hidden beauty of the morning’s first light illuminating a forest floor, a mountain top, or reflecting a mist upon a sleeping lake?”

His approach to wildlife photography is centered on developing a relationship with his subjects; understanding animal behaviors while respecting their role in the balance of nature. 

  • “We live among wild creatures and visit their environment momentarily. When we leave, they must remain, survive, reproduce, and play out the balance of nature as either predator or prey”.
