- Bear Photography
For any wildlife photographer there’s an animal that they love to photograph above all others; for me, without question it’s bears! Through my images, I try to share my experiences with these amazing creatures. From May through November, there’s nothing that I want to do more than to find the next bear to photograph. Watching grizzly bear cubs play and chase each other on a hillside can be one of the most comical displays as you’ll ever see in nature. They are so playful as cubs and can be even as adults. This is a side of bears that few people will ever see or understand and is why I try to capture this in my stories and photographs for everyone to appreciate. Bears really are a misunderstood animal! Through hundreds of encounters, there have been a few close calls, but generally bears are gentle and really want nothing to do with people. Of course, you’re always wise to keep your distance as no matter how well you think you understand a wild animal, they are always unpredictable!
Keep an eye out this coming summer for my newest bear pictures!
- Still Looking
I’ve spent my whole life in the wilderness, always looking for a great photo… but there’s one thing I still have never seen: a cougar! I’ve come across tracks so fresh that I’ve felt I needed to continuously look over my shoulder. It’s an eery feeling to know there’s a huge cat somewhere near by, but never being able to see it! They are something that are always on my mind when I’m out in the wilderness, but still have never got even a glimpse of one! As a photographer, it’s a dream to have a chance to photograph one in a natural setting! I can’t even imagine the thoughts of being within a stones throw of such a natural born killer! Hopefully when the day does come, I can keep nerves and hold the camera nice and steady!!
