Welcome to the Montana Panoramic Gallery!
Montana Panoramic an ongoing collection of photographs by Craig W. Hergert. Beginning in 1997, this collection of vast landscapes, mountain ranges, rivers, parks, towns, wildlife, hunting and fishing images from all over the great state of Montana has grown to thousands of images, and continues to grow each day.
"Craig does a masterful job of capturing a timeless feeling in all of his breathtaking images. He has spent thousands of days getting up before dawn to climb to just the right location, so that when the sun comes up and before the lifts turn on, he will get that magic photo that will excite you and make you want to experience freedom of your own."
- WARREN MILLER - 2012 - excerpt from "Montana Skiing The Last Best Place"
"Hergert’s panoramics seem to capture the entirety of a scene, from subtle differences in topography and color to holistic form and totality of detail. The result is a more comprehensive engagement of the mind, and a more visceral aesthetic response. When you see an image in Montana Panoramic of a place you’ve been, if only once and years ago, you recognize it immediately."
Mike England, Spring 2008 "Outside Bozeman"
"He is an artist of uncommon acumen, his eye attuned to visions of
great magnitude alongside the specific substrata of
both the human and the wild, flora, fauna, land and
sky, the face of a wildflower or the neck of a swan,
captured and given to those of us graced to witness
