The Chase

September 13, 2022  •  Leave a Comment
The chase and the catch. It's almost time for me to leave the bears and salmon of Alaska behind for fall photography in Wyoming's Jackson Hole. Having arrived in Alaska in mid June, it's been a great three months! But... I also can't wait to see what the moose have in store this fall in the Tetons! As with all of my images, if you see something...

Grizzly Swim

September 10, 2022  •  Leave a Comment
A seemingly tender moment between a grizzly and his (rotten) salmon which he fished up from the lagoon bottom. Many of the salmon here in southeastern Alaska have spawned and dying by this time. While the bears get very picky and only seem to eat female salmon - for their roe - at the beginning of the season when the salmon are arriving... toward...

Fox Kits

September 06, 2022  •  Leave a Comment
When I arrived in the Tetons this year for spring photography, I got there on April 1st. With frequent snowfall and some daytime highs hovering near 0 F, not much was moving yet. The first few weeks, I focused on the northern section of the park from Willow Flats to the border with Yellowstone. Deep snow in these higher elevations meant bears wer...

Salmon Roe

August 29, 2022  •  6 Comments
The longer I spent pursuing wildlife photography, the more I'm convinced that gear isn't the end-all be-all. Of course, you need an adequate camera body. You need a good enough lens. You need to know how to use your camera as there's typically very little time when animal action happens, and there are few, if any, do-overs. If you have any ques...

Fishing Wolves

August 23, 2022  •  Leave a Comment
Time flies when you're having fun! Here's a coastal wolf fishing for salmon in Alaska, where I'm spending the summer. Since late July, the salmon have really started coming in to the creek where I go look for bears and wolves daily. Grizzlies seem to prefer catching the female chum salmon to eat the eggs. Wolves prefer the pink salmon... only e...

Salmon Run

August 05, 2022  •  4 Comments
Once the temperature (and mosquito count!) started rising in Jackson Hole, Wyoming this June, there was only one destination on my mind: Alaska! Having been unable to make it to Alaska these past two years due to Canada's border being closed (COVID), I've been looking forward to making the long drive once again to Southeast Alaska. A bit grumbly...

Cattle or Grizzlies?

July 08, 2022  •  2 Comments
When you like nature, wildlife and value places where you can still get away and hope to see a grizzly or wolf, it feels like the ability of a large part of the population to even tolerate our wildlife is getting smaller and smaller. It'll be a sad day when the last grizzly or wolf gets shot. An ever growing human population will unavoidably resu...

Grizzly Sprint

If you ever wonder what it looks like when a grizzly comes sprinting directly towards you... here is the answer in pictures. The grizzly pictured is one of the biggest males (or 'boars') around in Wyoming. The locals in Jackson Hole call him 'Bruno.' Being the biggest grizzly in town comes with its perks: Bruno is believed to be the dad of most...
