Standing on a little rise an arctic fox basks in the rosy serenity of the setting northern sun of Canada’s Ellesmere Island. I love the contrast of deep blue hues around the fox with the pastel pinks which makes for a very calm and relaxed image.
We are really thrilled with the prints we doing using the Epson Metallic Photo Paper Luster. It has a resin-coated base and a pearl-like luster finish which produces images with high sharpness, excellent dynamic range, and a wide color gamut. “Ellesmere Fox” looks great printed on this paper.
Save 20% on any “Arctic Fox” print purchased this month. They are printed on EPSON Premium Metallic Photo Luster paper using archival EPSON Ultrachrome inks, and I hand sign them with a silver acid-free pen. Get more information about my Fine Art prints here.
The rare arrival of snowy owls to Western Washington and British Columbia is creating quite a stir. Yesterday I headed up to the George C. Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary to see the big white predators, and I was not disappointed.
There have been sitings and reports from all over Cascadia. >>CLICK HERE For the article from the Seattle Times
The Canadian Rockies never disappoint. The scenery is the finest you’ll ever want to see, and I was so pleased to share some of my favorite locations with a small group of fellow photographers. We rode on horseback into Jasper National Park’s Tonquin Valley and rose before dawn to photograph the fleeting sunrises. The weather was mercurial: one moment the sun was glinting off the Amethyst Lakes, the next we were being stung in the face with granular snow blowing sideways. We huddled for a few minutes in a defensive circle like muskox and let the storm blow by. There was still ice on many of the lakes and we were able to experiment with abstract macro shots, which was a terrific contrast to the expansive landscape around us. Glacial powder blue Peyto Lake never disappoints and Lake Louise with its bloodred canoes is always iconic. I look forward to taking another group back soon!

As you may have heard this weekend on the XRite Coloratti Blog, I am offering a new workshop experience in August in the Canadian Rockies. This photographic workshop is sure to be one of the most unique and special of the year. This is open to a maximum of only 4 participants. I will be assisted by a veteran colleague, Gavriel Jecan, and Chris Martin, an excellent Alberta photographer that knows this territory very well. You need only show up in Calgary, Alberta ready to begin the workshop on August 14th and we take care of all the rest.
Because the class size is so small, you may not find any more detail on our website describing this workshop, so please call for more information.
In Washington, call 206-332-0993 or toll free 888-973-0011.
If these dates don’t work and you are interested in taking a specialized small-group photographic workshop with Art Wolfe, give us a call and let’s design something.
Last weekend Art traveled to Vancouver, BC with friends and fellow photographers Jay Goodrich and Gavriel Jecan to shoot for an upcoming book on dogs and capture unique images at the Gay Pride Parade. The week prior to that Art and Gavriel photographed the Gay Pride Parade in Seattle. Here is a mini gallery of both events.
