Welcome to the Stoecklein Collection! Here you will find all of David R. Stoecklein's beautiful Western photography books, note cards, prints, calendars & gift items.

David Stoecklein launched his career taking lifestyle shots of skiing, fishing, hiking and biking before he turned his lens to his neighbors on the great ranches of the West. David's fascination with the ranching heritage of the American West led him to befriend, and subsequently photograph, the men and women still breathing life into the mythical figure of the cowboy. David's passion for preserving the traditions and beliefs of the country's honest, hard-working cowboys and cowgirls gradually earned him their respect. With that respect came an open invitation to share in their lives and the great responsibility to honor their trust.

Dave Stoecklein is one of the accomplished master photographers in Canon's "Explorers of Light" education and inspiration program and has been named the "Best Living Photographer of the West" by True West magazine. In addition to publishing this extensive collection of Western photography products, Stoecklein Photography also houses an extensive stock collection encompassing both lifestyle and western images and supports a gallery of fine art prints and western memorabilia in Ketchum, Idaho where David resides with his wife, Mary, and their three sons.

When he is not behind his lens capturing the beauty of the western way of life you can find David at his ranch in Mackay, Idaho where he also leads a series of fantastic photography workshops that are a once in a lifetime western experience for all who attend.
