Hi, my name is Packy, also know as the Greek Mountain Man

I am no stranger to the beauties a camera can capture; before I delved into wildlife photography, l photographed people, products and real estate. However my interest in capturing wildlife was kindled when I moved to the Tetons and that kick started my career and journey as a wildlife photographer.

An all-time ardent lover of nature, I developed a passion for Yellowstone and Grand Tetons when I was a child, and that passion has driven me to photograph the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone throughout the years. I have also been able to witness and photograph different species in North America (the likes of broad-winged hawks, eagles, owls, osprey, and those that can be found in our national parks), as well as across Canada and Alaska.

I have photographed not only birds but also mammals in the North American temperate. The mammals include but are not limited to grizzlies, black bears, moose, elk, and mountain lions.

My spiritual fascination coupled with my over 350 expeditions in Yellowstone and Grand Tetons have instilled in me a confidence that I can boldly say I know the nooks and crannies of this place more than anyone. This is why I am called the Greek Mountain Man. Between 2018 and 2020, I lived in (and had a year-and-a-half-long expedition in) the Grand Teton National Park with an aim to better myself while spending time with the wildlife.

“When photographing wildlife, I focus on the in-between moments. I treasure capturing movement, the evanescent eye contact with an animal, the twinkle in an eye, the transitory light at dawn and dusk, and other priceless moments that often go unnoticed by the wondering observer.”
