Rod Planck’s interest in nature photography and love for the natural world began at an early age. Years of experience as a naturalist have established a broad understanding and respect for the natural world—forming the basis of his interest in nature photography.
Rod images have appeared in many publications. Nikon USA designated Rod as a “Legend Behind the Lens” and in 2002, was heralded by Outdoor Photographer as one of the top five “Masters of the Landscape.” Rod’s instructional articles on photography have appeared in numerous magazines including Birder’s World, Nature’s Best, Outdoor Photographer and on Nikon’s Learn and Explore Website. He has been published in several major photography books, including Nature’s Places, The Spirit of the North, Wild Michigan, Birds of North America, The Nature of America, Daybreak 2000 and The North Woods.
Rod is passionate about teaching others about nature photography. He has conducted hundreds of nature photography tours, workshops and one-day seminars throughout North America, Iceland and Antarctica. He runs his photography workshop and tour business with his wife, Marlene from their log home on 200 acres in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.
