People have asked me how it is that I photograph something as massive as a polar bear but also as miniscule as a collared pika. In this post I discuss a bit about why that is and what it takes to cover a broad range of wildlife as a photographer.

Top Ten Mistakes

Photographers tend to celebrate their successes, sharing their best images and best stories with the public. But at some point in their careers, they make mistakes. I thought it might be useful to share some of my own and a bit of what I have learned.

Getting Ready for the Road

Photographers often share techniques and locations, or sometimes they don’t, as part of demystifying certain aspects of photography as an art or a business. But quite often, that is teaching the theory without teaching the practical. I thought it would be useful to share some of the things that I do just to get ready for a trip.

The Long Road to Photography

The same can be true for artists. Who we are, where we came from, what drove us down this insane path often wields information about what inspires us, how we do things. So this is my origin story, and a bit on why I do what I do as an artist.
