The photography of Mark Peters will be on exhibit starting Aug. 3 at The Old Hotel Art Gallery in Othello, 33 E. Larch St.
Peters, a nature photographer from Ephrata, is a hydro engineer by day at the Wanapum Dam west of the Tri-Cities.
"I have enjoyed nature photography for many years," Peters said. "Originally drawn to landscapes, I have a fascination with wildlife, so it is a natural progression for me to take up wildlife photography."
Gallery director Sally Laufer said Peters' photos are the kind of art that would be an asset to home and office settings.
Never miss a local story.
"His photography is some of the most beautiful that I have seen," she said.
Though Peters' photos are shot digitally, he was originally a fan of black-and-white film.
"I was one of those guys who was dragged kicking and screaming into the digital age," he said. "But now I find that I rather enjoy the remarkable detail you get with digital."
Peters' photos have appeared in books, calendars and such magazines as International Wildlife, Ranger Rick, Nature Photographer, Bugle Mule Deer and Montana Outdoors.
A reception for Peters is from 3 to 5 p.m. Aug. 3 at the gallery. Admission is free. Regular gallery hours are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. The gallery is closed Sundays and Mondays.
