Skeeter Hagler Photo

Photographer Skeeter Hagler is the recipient of photography's highest honor, The Pulitzer Prize, for his documentary on the life of the Texas cowboy. A native Texan, Skeeter is based in Texas and has over 40 years of experience traveling the world on assignments and projects for many of the top magazines and corporations in the country. Skeeter's Pulitzer portfolio of the Texas Cowboy is highly regarded and collected by many investors of Western Art.

Skeeter's 3 day assignment to a historic Texas ranch in Cat spring, Texas for a Texas travel magazine turned into a love affair with the land, animals, and wide open spaces of BlissWood. Now calling BlissWood home, Skeeter just has to walk out of the door of his 'cabin in the woods' to experience the sites and sounds of nature. Photographing nature, the animals and the people of BlissWood has become a life long project of Skeeter.

Another love affair of Skeeter Hagler is his decade long association with the system of Olympus cameras and lenses. Olympus cameras have become like an extension of Skeeter's body and soul; always at hand, always ready to capture nature at it's best, the animals at work and the people of BlissWood pursuing day to day activities. The size and ease of use of Olympus cameras has made the on-going BlissWood photographic project possible.
