Bud Lehnhausen

Having worked as an expedition leader and naturalist guide for Lindblad Expeditions for the past 35+ years, I have had the good fortune to explore and learn about a great diversity of the Earth's environments.  

My interest in nature and wildlife traces back to childhood fishing trips with my father and a couple of high school canoe trips in the Boundary Waters of Canada. After obtaining my undergraduate degree in Wildlife Biology at Colorado State University, I moved to Alaska to work for the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge.  I later conducted seabird research to obtain my Master's degree in wildlife biology from the University of Alaska Fairbanks.  I worked various jobs after obtaining my degree, assisting with research on moose and caribou for the U.S. Forest Service and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, studying bird migration on the north slope, and conducting seabird surveys by zodiac along the outer coast of southeast Alaska.  I began working for Lindblad Expeditions in 1983 and found my passion in helping others discover and explore the diversity of nature.

Over the years, I have seen and photographed a remarkable variety of plants and animals.  I am now slowly working through the mountain of images I have taken with the aim of sharing the most captivating and interesting.

I hope the images I share can help to increase people's awareness and appreciation of the great beauty and diversity in nature and the sale of my photos can help to raise funds for nature conservation.
