Stacey Huston was born and raised in the shadow of the great Rocky Mountains of North West Montana. Her parents brought her up interacting with, watching, studying and learning from the wildlife and nature that surrounded her, instilling in her a deep respect for the outdoors. As a young girl, spending countless hours in the wild places fostered a love of the outdoors and all things wild that has carried on throughout her adult life.
A licensed Falconer of nine years she has expanded that love of working with wildlife into helping to rehabilitate wounded and injured raptors as a sub-permittee for a local rehabilitation center.
Her camera always at hand, she has thousands of wildlife photos to her credit with several published in various outdoor and hunting magazines. She is an avid outdoorswoman and has learned to be proficient with a bow and arrow, rifle, pistol and fishing rod. Among many hunts, a favorite includes the harvest of a 4X5 mule deer buck
with a long bow and homemade arrows at 13 yards.
Stacey is a devoted mother of two beautiful boys, a wife, and friend to those who have the pleasure of knowing her(and putting up with her). She is mountain tough as well, she can, has, and will continue to traverse some of the most rugged country the Rocky Mountains have to offer. From the River of No Return Wilderness in Idaho when she was pregnant with her first child, to the Clarks Fork Canyon in Wyoming present day. She enjoys the truly wild and scenic places where few dare to venture. Taking her children along, to learn the most important aspects of life, which only nature can teach. Venturing far and wide to find those remote places still untouched by man.
Through her photos she brings the west alive for those less fortunate than she to share. One has only to see through the lens of her camera for one day, and the raw, unique beauty she captures will hold them, transfixed and searching for more.
