“When I was 16 I started working at a private zoo for reptiles in Rapid City, South Dakota, and with my first paycheck I went down and bought a camera so I could take pictures of amphibian and reptiles,” Peterson said. “I considered becoming a professional photographer while was in college, but decided I’d rather be a scientist. I’ve pretty much been taking photographs continuously since I was 16.”
