TheRagens Wildlife Photos
Wildlife and Nature Photography from the Pacific Northwest

We are fortunate to have an idyllic getaway place in the San Juan Islands in Puget Sound that supports a wide range of native wildlife including bald eagles, orca (killer) whales, porpoises, red foxes, sea otters, deer, seals and sea lions and more. As we gain new skills and add to our collection of photos, we will continue to post new pictures.

    View our photo albums of wildlife from the San Juan Islands.

Some of our top galleries include:

Recently, we have added the ability to purchase some of our photographs via this website, including some pen and ink reproductions.

In October 2004, this website won an award for excellence in imaging and design from This award recognizes a handful of professional websites every month.

The San Juan Islands have captivated wildlife photographers for years with the variety of animals that are common. The books currently available from that are listed below are a good starting point for some of the wildlife and natural scenery from the islands. We have also listed some specific books on many of the individual picture pages.


In looking for good books on outdoor and wildlife photography, I've pulled together some lists and snapshot reviews from some of the classier outdoor photography magazines that I read. I've posted these lists here:
