About the editor:
A bell on a bird dog. Another log in the cast iron woodstove at hunt camp. Fall leaves crunching underfoot. These are some of my favorite things. Joel Schnell is a photographer and editor and publisher of ruffedgrouseminnesota.com. He has over 10 years editorial experience photographing the industry-leading Black and Decker Home DIY books on home improvement, dog training, lifestyles and green living; and dozens of other titles for Quayside Publishing. His commercial assignment work clients include many of Minnesota's largest corporations. He is director of photography on DSLR motion projects and has worked on several locally produced films. From his hunting camp about 40 miles from Duluth, he photographs, hunts, trains dogs, canoes, fishes, snowmobiles, and enjoys cabin life. His photographic travels have included the Rocky Mountain states, Pacific Northwest and Midwest. With his trusty Jeep and brittany Maggie beside him, his hunting and fishing travels include Minnesota, the Dakotas, Ontario, and Wisconsin. Visit his work at www.schnellphoto.com.
