About me

Maggie Gray

Photographer / Journalist

Maggie has traveled all over the world and now finds herself immersed in helping conservation efforts through her imagery educating others on the fragility of many species.   Sumatran Orangutan, Amur Leopard, King Penguin, Emperor Penguin, Bonobo Monkeys, Southern and Northern Rockhopper Penguin, Western Lowland Gorillas, Polar Bear, the list is heartbreaking........  

Many species are now gone, forever only remaining through educational materials and imagery.   Our children are now robbed of the excitement of seeing so many species in the wild or even in captivity.  As difficult as it may be to see wildlife captive, often it is the safest and most humane option left for many.   Poaching, habitat destruction, slaughter, environmental changes all are key components to precious animals now evaporating into history.  

Maggie travels in search of the possibility of bringing to her audience the very essence of an animal through imagery.  She shows passion and depth so that even an animal photographed in captivity has meaning and worth in its existence.  Moving one to be in awe, wonder or tears through her imagery means Maggie's efforts have reached her ultimate goal.   To ensure that the essence of an animal permeates the viewer's soul to not just view but THINK and FEEL what endangered means hoping to move someone to get involved.   DO something, take action, become aware and know that even ONE photograph, ONE image, can be enough to move mountains and safe lives.
