Greetings! Let me take this opportunity to introduce myself to you. My name is Rev. Joseph Classen, and I’m originally from St. Charles, Missouri. Located along the Missouri river and nearby the mighty Mississippi, this historic town was founded in 1769 by Louis Blanchette, and was known as a launching pad for early explorers, traders, and immigrants who were heading west. St. Charles was a thriving trading community back in the day, and is the site of the famous Lewis and Clark Rendezvous. It was also the familiar stomping grounds of folks such as Saint Philippine Duchesne and Daniel Boone. It’s along those muddy rivers, immersed in that adventurous, pioneer spirit that my undying love of the outdoors was born!I graduated high school in St. Charles, went on to receive a BA in Philosophy from St. Louis University, and a Masters of Divinity from Kenrick-Glennon Theological Seminary in 2003. I served as an associate pastor of three parishes in Missouri and am currently the pastor of a parish on Kodiak Island, Alaska. Along with my parish ministry, I've written four books and numerous articles on the Christian faith and the outdoors. I was the host of an outdoors-themed radio show for several years and have been involved in a variety of media work.A passionate love of God and His creation has possessed my heart and soul from the day I was born, literally! As a lifelong nature lover, I've spent countless hours immersed in the stunning beauty of the wilderness. I’ve been greatly blessed to regularly visit some of the wildest, remotest, most captivating places in America and beyond. Wild Revelation Photography is the fruit of those experiences. It is my pleasure to bring to you an ever-growing photography collection of the grandeur of nature and the incredible creatures that we share our world with. It is my hope that these images of wild places and wildlife will indeed reveal to you the glory and majesty of the God who created it all.
Please keep in mind, Wild Revelation Photography is not simply a personal business, but also a ministry, as a portion of each sale will be donated to charitable organizations that serve those in need, and also to reputable conservation groups that protect our natural resources and wild lands.
