nature's sake photography
Welcome to Nature's Sake Photography featuring the nature photography of James Rodewald. At our core we are a socially-responsible nature photography studio that is committed to donating significant portions of our profits to help support conservation groups that work to protect the lands we photograph. No less than 10% of our profits from every sale are paid forward to conservation, often more. This is a principle we are immensely proud of and we stand by it with conviction!
James Rodewald is a freelance nature photographer with decades of experience in many parts of the United States. His work primarily focuses upon the wild areas of the Northeast, with New York's Adirondack region being a frequent topic of study. He started his photographic journey back in the early 1980s with a Nikon FM-2 35-mm film camera and has evolved through various iterations of the Nikon line over the years to their more advanced digital SLRs of today. Although his portfolio of film and digital work spans many years, one can see a few common themes emerge. One of those central themes is a long-term attempt to capture scenes of the natural world seemingly untouched by humanity, nature in its natural state. No easy task in today's world, a principle which in part initiated the founding of Nature's Sake Photography in 2017.
When not in the woods surrounding his home in the Southeast Adirondacks or searching for new subjects to photograph, he is a full-time environmental science educator at Shaker High School in Latham, NY. He is also a proud husband and father of two children.
