Walt Anderson became involved with nature photography in the 1990s. In addition to being published in both books and magazines, Walt is also selling his work at many art fairs in the Midwest. He and his wife Carol also present travelogues throughout the Chicagoland area. They have begun teaching photography classes and leading tours at the Morton Arboretum in Lisle, Illinois.
Inspired by Larry West at an early workshop Walt started to explore the capabilities of the new TTL flash units that were just being introduced. He has received widespread recognition for his invention of the Flash X-tender, which is distributed worldwide. (It is also marketed under the name "Better Beamer.") He has shared his knowledge of the use of flash with his Sunshine in your Pocket program for many conventions and clubs.
Walt has been published in books and calendars by Capstone Press, Compass International, The Creative Company, Everyday Learning, and Chicago Wilderness magazine among others.
