Jim Urbach

    Jim Urbach was born and raised in New Jersey. He attended Williams College and graduated from Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. After two years at Presbyterian Hospital, New York City, he completed his orthopedic residency at University of Pittsburgh. Following his tour of duty as Chief of Orthopedics at Lyster Army Hospital, Ft. Rucker, Alabama he moved to Florida and practiced his specialty in the greater Orlando area for 27 years.

    In the early 1980's Jim became enamored with scenic photography and travel. Since 1992 he has found Nature and Wildlife Photography more challenging. To this end his travels have included 15 trips to Alaska, 5 safaris to Africa and other trips to France, Greece, Norway and Denmark. In 2006 he traveled to Japan, India and Nepal. He returned to Antarctica in January 2008 and visited Iceland for the first time in June. He has also traveled extensively throughout the U.S. His U.S. trips have included California, New England, New Mexico, Utah, Montana, Arizona and Texas, as well as Canada at least 12 times in recent years. Please check back from time to time as Jim is constantly adding more images.

    Bill Bachmann's book REMEMBER THE JOY has a 4 page section describing some of my photo experiences.
