Markus and Candy Erk-Manthey
Having both come from rural ranch backgrounds, Markus and his wife, Candy Erk Manthey, established their own commercial photography business. In 1994, their interest and work in the field of black-footed ferret conservation earned them a contract through the Federal Government to photograph/document the reintroduction of the black-footed ferret into the Badlands of South Dakota. Since then, they have worked with both state and national parks to supply photos for various park projects. In the studio, their film photography once included medium and large format.
