I'm a full time nature photographer in the Chicago area. My passion is photographing endangered species, but I love photographing all things in nature. My dream is to find a way to use my photography to make the world a better place.

I have founded a not-for-profit called Team Green Environmental Network. Check out, Team Green’s mission is to educate, enlighten and inspire people to make the everyday choices to create a greener planet. Using compelling nature photography and informational graphics Team Green will communicate the important environmental issues of the day and suggest ways for people to contribute to the health of the planet. If you would like more information or would like to make a tax deductible contribution to Team Green, please email me.

I am in the process of photographing every threatened and endangered species in Illinois. Recently I photographed my 132nd species. I have set up a special flickr site that has all the species I have photographed so far. Check out The Endangered Species Photography Project photos at

This year I am working with Plants of Concern as their official photographer. They are helping me find the rare species I am photographing and in return they get educational use of the photos I take of the plants they monitor. You can get more information about them at

All photos are ©Carol Freeman and are available for sale or prints. Please email me if you would like more information.

I've created a line of products that are for sale which help support my Endangered Species Photography Project. You can purchase Calendars, Bookmarks, Greeting Cards, Posters, Post Cards, and other fun products on my website

Equipment used:
Nikon F6
Nikon D2X
Nikon D300s
My favorite lenses are the Nikon 300mmF4, 200mm f4, and the 105mm Macro. I started using digital cameras in 2006. I use a 27" iMac with a 1T drive and 4GB of ram to handle all the digital files I am generating. I got to test out the Nikon D3X and I have to say it is an amazing camera. I hope to be able to purchase one soon.
Almost all my shots are taken hand held with available light only. No flash, fill, filters or spray bottles. I like to leave the area as untouched as possible.

I welcome all comments and questions! Please note only friends can view my photos at the large size.

Thanks for stopping by my photostream.
