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.
