Welcome to Wolf River Studio
The Art & Photography of Gregory Mayse
THANK YOU for taking time to visit my site and see my passion for the Great Outdoors! I have spent the past 40 years working as a photographer, writer, graphic designer, illustrator, painter and even a musician. The works you see on this site are what my creative life is about.
"Life is an adventure and I choose to live it hiking, biking, skiing, snowshoeing, paddling a canoe or kayak with my camera gear, oil paints and often both." -Gregory Mayse
