World renown wildlife photographer Sumio Harada was born in Japan and studied biology at Tokyo University of Agriculture. His research on the behavior of the Japanese serow, a close relative of our mountain goat, led to his wildlife photography career, prompting his move to the U.S. and the Rocky Mountains. Eventually Harada settled in West Glacier, Montana. His images have been published in National Geographic, National Wildlife, Ranger Rick, Canadian Wildlife, GEO, Montana Magazine, 2007 Canon Desk Calendar and in numerous international magazines and books. In 2008 he published his own photo book, Mountain Goats of Glacier National Park.
