Since retiring from a career in banking in 1996, Evansville resident Bill Vieth has taken over 10,000 wildlife and nature photographs. He has traveled extensively throughout the United States, shooting photographs across the Rocky Mountain Range from New Mexico to Montana and throughout the State of Alaska, including the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and Denali National Park, home to North America’s highest peak, the awe-inspiring, 20,320 foot Mount McKinley.

Vieth’s travels outside of the United States include the Canadian Northwest Territories; Tanzania and Kenya in East Africa; the Pantanal, the world’s largest freshwater wetland, located in Brazil; Costa Rica; and the Galapagos Islands.

His wildlife photographs and articles have been published in various magazines including Outdoor Indiana, Wyoming Wildlife, Colorado Summit Magazine, and Evansville Living.

In addition to wildlife photography, Vieth has been active in sports photography. He has photographed the U.S. National Men’s and Women’s soccer teams during the Olympic and World Cup Qualifying matches and Major League Professional Soccer in Denver and Dallas, as well as tournaments sponsored by the U.S. Youth Soccer Association. The University of Evansville soccer and basketball teams have used his photographs on its website and in media guides.
