Rod Sutton has enjoyed nature from an early age, dreaming of becoming a wildlife biologist with a focus on herpetology. One of his first jobs was at Rogers Environmental Conservation Center in Sherburne, NY.
His life found its own path, leading to a career in advertising, commercial, and industrial photography. With 20 years of experience in the field, he accepted a position with DCMO BOCES in 1993 to start a new academic program in Visual Communications. After 10 years in the classroom, he moved to a position as Coordinator of Instructional Technology, retiring in 2012.
Blending his abilities as photographer and teacher with his appreciation for nature and wildlife, he now dedicates his time to studying and photographing animals in their natural habitats. He also teaches photography workshops and presents programs.
