About Michael Routh & Smoke Chaser Media


Michael Routh has been regarded as a leading nature photographer for over twenty-five years. He offers his collection of high quality wildland fire, landscape, nature and wildlife photographs as stock images for commercial use in advertising, editorial or corporate applications under a Right Protected relationship.

In recent years, he has been living in San Jose, California. Because of the extensive time he spends in nature in the western United States, he has seen the devastating impact wildland fires have on our environment. To document the impact wildland fires have and the heroic firefighters who risk their lives to protect our natural resources, Michael Routh has become an approved wildland fire photographer for the State of California's wildland fire fighting agency CAL FIRE. He has received training in fire behavior and fire safety. Because of his training and the relationship he has with CAL FIRE, he is able to access "fireline" locations at a wildland fire other media cannot reach to take dramatic photographs.

Because of the deep respect and appreciation Michael Routh has for the brave men and women who fight wildland fires, he offers them a 30% discount on purchases of photographs.
