Monte Nagler began photographing seriously after studying with Ansel Adams. "It was during that period of intensive work that I realized that making photographs is a way to experience beauty instead of just looking at it," Nagler says. He believes that photographers should communicate feelings that are inside them. Through their photographs, a photographer should be saying: "This is what I saw and felt and I'd like to share that!"
Monte's photographs, which have won numerous awards, are found in many private and public collections including the Detroit Institute of Arts; the University of Michigan Museum of Art; the Dayton Art Institute; the Grand Rapids Art Museum; the Center for Creative Photography; The Brooklyn Museum; The State of Michigan; General Electric Corporation; BASF Corporation; Compuware; and Ford, Chrysler, and General Motors. Galleries and agents throughout the country also represent his photography.

Frequently, he is called upon to judge contests and to speak on photography topics on local radio and television shows.
