Tuesday we had an opportunity to interview Kari Greer about her “Facing the Inferno” exhibit of wildfire photography. It is on display for three days, May 21-23, during the Fire Continuum Conference at the University of Montana in Missoula in the University Center, room 227.

The photos in the exhibit are borrowed from the main venue showing her photography which was at the Prichard Art Gallery on the campus of the University of Idaho until April 14, 2018.

Kari is a very well respected and skilled wildland fire photographer who has specialized in the field for years.

  1. Great eye and great work Kari. It’s also really cool to have someone taking photos that understands and knows what they’re looking at and what’s actually going on.

    Great interview, Bill.

    1. Thanks Bill for the feature.
      Kari always did great work for the wildland Fire community.
      I still remember the first day she came to NIFC.

      Glad to see her work. She’s got the soul of the firefighter.

      All the best. Mike

  2. I would’ve loved to have seen this in Missoula today. Please keep us updated when are where Kari’s show will be going next. Excellent video.

  3. A terrific collection of her non-flame work will be featured in John Maclean’s new book River of Fire – the Rattlesnake Fire and the Mission Boys, which debuts June 23 at the smokejumper reunion in McCall. Kari spent a week on the Mendocino with our ground support crew, three former hotshot supes, Don Will and Jon Tishner and Daren Dalrymple. Kari’s not only cute but also excellent to work with.
