My name is Todd Maertz and I am a Nature and Wildlife photographer in Muskegon, Michigan.
 

   Growing up in Michigan has given me a deep appreciation for nature and wildlife.  Being outdoors is a way of life for us Michiganders.  The more I travel the United States, the more I appreciate what we have here in our home state of Michigan.   Michigan is a treasure of natural beauty that only gets better as you travel North.  Travel has long been a passion of mine. Quickly into my journey, I realized I could document my memories through photography, so that I could share what I had seen with friends and family. It did not take long for photography to consume me. It has allowed me to see the beauty in everything around us. With that mindset, travel does not need to be a priority. There is beauty in your own back yard, your home town, or the state in which you live. I am a landscape and wildlife photographer living in Muskegon Michigan. I wake up each day, excited about what I might see and capture through my lens. I shoot because it inspires me. That one picture, that one moment in time, can not be seen again, but through photography. I hope you find some inspiration in my galleries and feel my passion in every photograph.
