Tribute to My Neighbor and Friend….


Three weeks ago my friend and neighbor, Wayne Van Burger, passed away. Fortunately, he died walking the back trails of his coveted Beaver Hill Ranch. A few months earlier, Wayne had returned from a 3-week photo-safari to Tanzania. During that trip, he captured thousands of spellbinding images. Dawn-to-dusk, Wayne pushed his creativity and endurance — bringing back prizewinners and heartfelt stories.

We are all going to miss Wayne. In the multimedia business, he was an icon with his television show – “The Joy of Fishing”, not to mention all the accolades he received across the globe for his wildlife photography. This man was more than a nature photographer, Wayne was a true artist extraordinaire.
