Kurt has always enjoyed photography and with digital photography he has been able to indulge this interest to the maximum. He has always liked panoramic photographs and landscapes. His photographs have been used in the River Alliance's calendar, the Wisconsin People and Ideas magazine from the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts and Letters as well as newspapers and local non-profit newsletters.

Kurt is a working artist with gallery representation and has his own business “Kurt Eakle Digital Photography Services”. The services include creating fine art photography, offering photography tours among the Baraboo hills, and making art prints for other artists and small businesses. Kurt’s motto is “some people spend money on a gym – I’ve decided to spend money on a good camera and use it to explore some of the hidden areas in Sauk County”.
