Dale Voelker lives in Burlington, Kentucky.  He retired from GE Aircraft Engines in 1994 after 35 years in Mechanical Design.  After retiring, he operated Kentucky Adventures Photo Tours, a five-day instructional photography tour of Kentucky State Parks.

Photography has always been a large part of his life, having been a member of the Trti-State Photographic Society for over thirty years.  His interests in photography have usually been toward the natural world, however, his book, The Kentucky Bicentennial, was a departure from that.
