Photographing nature, especially wildlife, is where Alycyn Culbertson's real energy lies. Although she has engaged in photographing humans at various events, that is not her true calling. Lee Culbertson shares the enthusiasm and has added significantly to the repertoire.
Alycyn Culbertson married the love of her life, Lee, in 1999 in Clearwater, Florida. She has two children, Elliot Lewis and Kate Lewis from her first marriage.
Alycyn Culbertson was professionally trained as a photographer at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Glynco, GA. She was lucky enough to attend intensive training first in 35mm and then in digital photography. Initially, her specialties were in crime scene and surveillance photography. Her profession transformed into her hobby and then back into her profession again upon her retirement from 27 years in federal law enforcement. She has been actively taking photographs for over 25 years.
Lee Culbertson is retired from over 21 years of service in the US Army Intelligence, where his area of expertise involved countries in the Middle East. After retirement, he returned to serve further as a civilian counter terrorism analyst.
Alycyn fine tuned her photography skills in Florida as a photographer for alligator hunts, taken totally at night. She spent 15 years in Florida, photographing everything from the complete lifecycle of an alligator to butterflies and birds. Alycyn & Lee worked hard to get their Florida backyard certified by the National Wildlife Federation as a “Backyard Wildlife Habitat” and the photos that followed were phenomenal.
Alycyn and Lee followed their dreams and moved west to Denver in 2005. It was the closest place they could get to Wyoming before her retirement in December 2008 when they relocated to Star Valley, WY.
We had not lived in Wyoming very long when we realized we really were living our dream. We have an incredible home in the woods with mule deer visiting almost daily. The birds visiting our feeders have been totally amazing and the scenery is beyond our imagination.
All photos dated prior to December 2009 were taken with a CANON 10D and one of 2 lenses: CANON 75-300mm 4-5.6 or CANON 28-105 3.5-4.5.
