Print of the Month: Claws

You may have guessed that I LIKE BEARS! I have been photographing Alaska’s bears since the early 1980s and I feel this is the best photograph of a brown bear I have ever taken – and that’s just not the adrenaline talking!

When you visit a location as often I have, you begin to recognize the ‘locals’, and I have a history with this bear. She’s a young female I’ve photographed in years past, catching fish like none other. This year she had two cubs demanding her attention and was still the best. As the male bears splashed and thrashed at fish, she was like an efficient machine; feeding her cubs was her prime objective. I knew exactly what she would do and focused on her.

Limited to an edition of 100, #1 is a glorious 40 x 53″, very nearly life size! Be the first to own this archival print and 10% of the retail will be donated in your name to the University of Washington’s Center of Conservation Biology (they’re the scientists who do significant work in the DNA tracking of poached endangered species!).

Be the bear, not the salmon!

20% Off the Print Of The Month – Hot Springs Zen

Save 20% on the Print of the Month – Hot Springs Zen. Captured on my trip to Honshu Island, Japan in February of 2013 I feel this shot perfectly represents much of what has been discovered about the Japanese Macaques, or snow monkeys, and their relationship with the hot springs in this location. According to this recent New York Times article, the monkeys use the hot baths to warm up and reduce their stress levels, much like I do when I hop in the hot tub after a long stretch of travel!

Technique Tuesday & Print of the Month: Creating the Night Fishermen

Many people believe that great photographic images are composed in a flash of inspiration; an epiphany that presents itself fully-formed, ready to be mined by the artist there to capture it. This can and does happen, yet most of the time we fumbled towards a great shot, refining the composition with each exposure.

Such is the case with one of my favorite images, featured in this video. For Technique Tuesday, hear me pull back the layers of the many elements I navigated through to get the final shot.

This shot is available as a print in our online store, and on sale this month. Also be sure to check out more videos on my multimedia page!
