I love Brandenburg and his work! But I was underwhelmed by the staff. They seemed more interested in other things besides the guests.

Jim worked his way into "Photography" by traveling and taking photos, lots of photos, and learning from the results. Over time people started to realize that he had the... More

This gallery has a nice array of all Jim's works. Be sure to view the cinematography. Plan to spend more than an hour because there are many prints. Join the Mailing list. The ladies working were very friendly and knowledgeable. So glad we stopped.

Jim Brandenburg has a very nice gallery to show off his photography talents. A majority of them are way out of my price range. There is s quaint sitting area to watch a video presentation of his photography. A very nice addition to Ely.

If you like nature photography you will love Brandenberg. He is my favorite wildlife photographer. He has amazing photos.

I have admired Jim Brandenburg's work for years as have many other nature enthusiasts. Jim's ability to capture wolves is second to NONE. A native MN and Ely resident, Jim has done photography for National Geographic for decades and has been around the world photographing all types of wildlife, even though I'm very partial to his breathtaking wolves from MN....

This place is too pricey and stuck up. The photos are fine, I have seen much better to be honest. The thing is that nature around here is so beautiful that it is hard to take a bad picture.

Even if you cannot afford a Jim Brandenburg photo, stop in and buy a few cards and learn about their new online video project. Kids and adult books too.

I love Brandenburg's photography and enjoyed seeing works that I had never seen before. I just wish it was a bigger space with more of his beautiful photos displayed.
