The Artsy side of Wildlife

I often don’t go towards the more artistic side of wildlife photography but every now and then an opportunity presents itself and you just have to go with it. After my run in with the wolf I truly done for the day. I didn’t think it could get any better and the light was fading […]

More out then just Fury Friends

You know the best part about working with wildlife is you never know what you’ll see. Sometimes critters just show up. Some call that part luck others just accept it for happening. This was one of those times where just sitting and watching brought more into frame. I was watching a pair of Sandhill Cranes […]

Patience Pays Off

Patience is a very important aspect of wildlife photography that cannot be underestimated. For some reason there is always a rush to keep going, to see what else is down the road, even if there is a good subject right in front of the photographer. Well this scenario happened to me this past weekend when […]

Bison Always Make Good Subjects

Bison are one of those great American west animals that I truly enjoy photographing. Right now is a great time of the year to be out working with these big mammals because the the Spring calf’s are starting to drop. When I was out on Saturday in Yellowstone, I saw only three of four this […]

Favorite Memories

We all have those memories that stick out in our minds more so then others and when you’re younger you dream about doing so many wonderful things in life, so it becomes hard to realize when one of things becomes a memory. Maybe it’s because there is so much excitement with something new that as […]

Respect and Responsibility

By now I imagine many of you have heard about the baby dolphin that died being passed around for selfies that happened on a beach in Argentina and made worldwide news. Normally I don’t post about issues like these on my blog because that was never the purpose of this blog. However, as I have […]

High Noon Session with the Sheep

It’s been a long time since I blogged about Bighorn Sheep so I made it a priority to find a group to photograph. I love working with Bighorn Sheep. When it comes to North American large mammals, Bighorn Sheep really are pretty simple to work with. Despite that, their behavioral characteristics are always interesting to […]

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 […]
