Jeff Grotte

Jeff Grotte is a freelance nature photographer living in Minneapolis with his partner, her three daughters, roughly one hundred chickens, six cats, a couple of Parakeets, two ducks and one Cockatoo. If his love for animals and wildlife isn’t already obvious, his work makes it crystal clear. He combines his love of the wilderness with his passion for photography. Grotte has struggled with a genetic congenital heart defect and diabetes, and finds that getting out in nature helps him put things in perspective.
