Kelly Engen is passionate about photography.

And has been for 43% of his life, to be exact. Kelly first picked up an SLR at 17 and shortly thereafter was lost in the college darkroom until the night watch would gave him the boot.

Since then, Kelly has pursued his passion for photography in Cambodia, Canada, Indonesia, Italy, Laos, Mexico, New Zealand, Thailand, Vietnam, and most of the Western United States.

His photos were recently featured by the Montana Wilderness Society in a campaign to preserve the Upper Missouri River Breaks Monument, where he is also a river guide. You can find his work in regional publications and hanging in businesses across Montana.
