John F Marshall is the son of the late David B. Marshall, a celebrated wildlife biologist.  John's formative years included living five years on the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon, backpacking in the high Wallowas, and fishing for cutthroat trout at Mt. Hood. Marshall has a B.S. in Fishery Science from Oregon State University, and an M.S. in Wildlife Resources from the University of Idaho.  John has an enduring interest in conservation of our public lands, and wishes to contribute by sharing what he has learned through his university training and many years of exploring and photographing.

That John has spent much time in the field and is a skilled photographer is self evident. Less obvious is his passion to understand the natural world, and seek solutions to environmental problems.   In the field, Marshall is a keen observer, who frequently comes up with questions, leading to forays into the world of scientific literature, and discussion with experts in the field.  Processing information from diverse source to reach an understanding of complex issues is both a skill and a passion.   John lives in Wenatchee, Washington with his wife Leslie.   He has three college age children- Charles, Sophie, and Theo and three stepsons- Ethan, Luke, and Max.  Besides his interests in photography and ecology, Marshall is a gardener, hiker,and canoe paddler.

 John F Marshall circa 1990.  My focus at the time was 4x5 landscape photography.  I loaded one sheet of film at a time in my closet, and hauled heavy equipment over many a mountain pass.
