Getting The Shot The First Time

There is a stigma in photography that every shot you take has to be the best. I never really understood this because every shot is a learning experience combining everything from the last shot up to that point. Thus every shot taken couldn’t possibly be the best. Photography is all about learning and the only […]

Got To Photograph What’s Common

Some lessons you just have to learn the hard way and by now you would think that I have learned this one but I still haven’t. While I was back home I had the chance to photograph some of the local bird species that inhabit the Sierra’s and always flock to my parents house as […]

Big Snow and Big Mammals

Over the last week the big storm that was gone across the northwest has brought with it lots of new snow and cold temps. While most people just enjoy that because it means good power days on the slopes, which I can’t argue are pretty nice right now, for us photographers it means great photo […]

Warthog Wednesday

I don’t know why some things get stuck in your head and others don’t but they sure can make for some funny thoughts. When I was a kid I watched a lot of Disney movies and I always liked the Lion King. When I went to Africa last year I was looking forward to seeing […]

Preparing for Hibernation

Winter time is often a slow time for myself. It’s a great time of the year to get caught up on past images that I overlooked, work on updating and creating new content for the blog, or just sit around writing articles. Since I went into aviation photography I’ve certainly noticed this trend since a […]

Biology is Key

It’s great when life throws you a surprise. A good friend of mine has been in town since last Friday and we have spent a lot of time fishing since then. Last Friday we were out in the morning at a spot and while the fishing wasn’t great it was a great day to be […]

The Other Subject on the River

Down the river only a mile from my Bald Eagle friend was another of the local inhabitants, the Osprey. It must’ve been a decent day to be out fishing but I didn’t get that memo. It was a similar setup to the eagle . This one was perched on a great branch across from a […]

All it takes is Getting Out

Yesterday I talked about how I was going through the Gallatin Mountains, working a particular stretch of highway that goes through a canyon as it makes its way to West Yellowstone. Well that stretch goes through some beautiful areas along the Gallatin River and the river is home to many species. As I was driving […]

That End of the Week Feeling

Don’t loose your heads over this one, but it’s Friday! It’s been a long week of writing and frankly I couldn’t think of anything else worth saying for today. In the absence of greatness humor finds its place. When working with critters I love finding those funny moments. It helps add a personal touch to […]

The Watchers Above

Fall is a great time to be out shooting and not just the leafs. North American mammals are in their prime for the season and is a great time to be photographing the big boys that roam the land. One of my personal favorites has always been the Rocky Mountain BigHorn Sheep. Fall is great […]
