Photographer (continued from page 7) Winner of the coveted Windland Smith Rice International Awards. To be chosen over thousands of incredible images of nature from around the world is a great honor. This is the world’s largest and most prestigious U.S.-based international nature photography competition,” Reiter said. “It is particularly gratifying to know that these images will now be shared with millions through two of the most respected and revered venues…the beautiful imagery displayed in Nature’s Best Photography Magazine and the grandeur of one of the most prestigious museums in the world, the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, Wash- ington, D.C. “I hope, in some small way, that my images, and those of the other winners, will continue the spirit and legacy of Windland (‘Wendy’) in helping people connect with nature and the need for conservation.” Wendy was the daughter of the founder of Federal Express and was actively involved in nature photography and conservation. She passed away at an early age from a rare heart disorder. Reiter’s love of nature and wildlife began at an early age. While he was attending Willard Elementary School in Ridgewood, he would come home to care for his miniature zoo in his family’s house. He raised hamsters, mice, guinea pigs, guppies, and other animals, and sold them to the local pet shop. To his mother’s dismay, he once owned an “alligator” (caiman). On weekends, he would join his family to work and play on their apple orchard in Mahwah. Today, he still resides in Mahwah on part of the land that was once that same apple farm. Reiter always had dreams of some day becoming a veterinarian and pursued the required pre-med courses in his first two years at Fairleigh Dickenson University in Teaneck. His father died at an early age, so Reiter had to work part-time at night to help defray some of the expenses while attended school full-time. It soon became clear that balancing that academic and work schedule simply would not work. He changed his major to marketing and led a successful business career for over 30 years with Automatic Data Processing. Seven years ago, he decided to retire early to actively pursue his love of nature and photography. He participates in local fine art shows throughout the year and has won ������������������������������ ������������������������������������������� ��������������������������������������������������� ������������������������������������������������������� ������������������������������������������������������������������������� ���������� ������������������������� A small gesture can make a big difference.
