'Mooseman' photographer at Gilford library on March 24

GILFORD — Photographer Rick "The MooseMan" Libbey will be at the Gilford Public Library on Tuesday, March 24 from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m to present stories and photographs of his experiences with moose. The event is free and open to the public.
A self-taught wildlife photographer since 2009, Rick is best known for his incredible photographs of moose. Rick has a rather unique approach to photographing wildlife – he flies in by floatplane to wilderness settings and explores and shoots by kayak once there. His immersive approach to photography has resulted in many absolutely stunning images of moose in their natural habitats. With many of his photographs come incredible stories as well.
Rick grew up on a dairy farm in the beautiful Blackstone Valley area of Massachusetts. He spent much of his youth in the woods exploring nature and was given his first camera when he was 10. Rick is completely self-taught and shot with Nikon film cameras for many years before making the transition over to Nikon digital cameras. At 62 years old, Rick is determined to spend a few more decades kayaking with the moose and following his soul-fulfilling passion.
