About Gary:

"I do not limit myself to one or two types of photography. I see a picture - I make an image. It is as simple as that. I take what is given to me, be it wildlife, barns, sand dunes or flowers. I live in a beautiful area with many attractions, and I feel as though I have only scratched the surface of photographic possibilities." Catch Gary  at the gallery on all Fridays from 11AM to 7PM. 


Raven's Heart Gallery is located in Kanab, UT. Home of Best Friends Animal Society and located in the heart of Southern Utah's natural wonders.
