Wildlife Education and Conservation


Stephen McDonough is a nature photographer dedicated to sharing his love of animals and nature with others, especially children.

“There is nothing like looking, if you want to find something. You certainly usually find something, if you look, but it is not always quite the something you were after.”  "It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to.”  J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings 


Over 80 of his gallery prints are in the Dakota Reflections Gallery located at the Independent Doctors Horizon Clinic at 4535 Northern Sky Drive  in Bismarck.


The purpose of Dakota Reflections is to provide education and support wildlife conservation with sales of greeting cards, prints and premium gallery canvas.
