The Wildlife Photography of Joe Mac Hudspeth, Jr.

Joe Mac Hudspeth, Jr.

Joe Mac Hudspeth, Jr.’s first attempt at wildlife photography occurred some thirty years ago when he photographed a sunning screech owl with a Kodak 110 Pocket Instamatic camera. Since then the self-taught, life-long Mississippian, has turned his hobby into a part-time job with his work appearing in numerous state, regional and national publications. In 1993 he received national recognition when his image of an immature least bittern, taken on Ross Barnett Reservoir, was awarded the “Grand Prize for Wildlife” by the Roger Tory Peterson Institute for Natural History. His work has also graced Mississippi Duck Stamps and Sportsman’s Licenses and his most popular print, “Top of the Morning”, is still a favorite at Ducks Unlimited banquets.

In 2003, University Press, published his first coffee table book, In the Southern Wild. He self-published, Return to the Southern Wild, in 2011. It is a collection of wildlife and scenic he has taken through out Mississippi over the past 30 years. He plans to release his next coffee table book in 2014.

Joe Mac also speaks to civic clubs, library’s, church groups, camera clubs, garden clubs and other groups about how he got started in wildlife photography and gets close to his subject using blinds and his Poke boat. He supports his talk with photographs taken thru out Mississippi.
