The Wild Side

The Wild Side is a FREE nature/wildlife/outdoor photography newsletter and field report published by Rick Hobbs. The Wild Side is only available on this website. The current plan is to publish The Wild Side quarterly. To receive notification and a link to the next issue of The Wild Side by e-mail please contact us, type ADD in the Subject area and send us the e-mail.

The Wild Side will provide you with educational information concerning upcoming nature & wildlife seminars or the exciting field workshops and photo adventures I have created. The section, From The Field, is where I can share field experiences with you including great photo opportunities and images. Another section called Photo Tips is a chance for me to share information about specific field techniques, camera equipment or accessories, digital darkroom tips and so on. The Website Updates section will let you know about updates to my website since the previous issue.
