Steve Mattheis

Steve Mattheis is a Jackson native and a wildlife photographer. A couple of years ago, he fell in love with photographing great gray owls. It turns out, they aren’t that easy to find. But he got a hang of it. And this year, one of his striking photos of the owl won the Audubon Society, Grand Prize award. Mattheis speaks with Wyoming Public Radio’s Kamila Kudelska on how he’s learned to spot great gray owls. But first Kudelska asks about the story behind the winning photo.
