Yellowstone winter Wild Wolf
The first snow has come and melted. It will be repeated again and again over the next few weeks until the land is covered by its winter blanket. Now is when Wolves, Coyotes, Foxes and the Cats will hunt hard to feed their young and put on weight for the lean months ahead.
This is the time for wildlife photographers to capture predator images. The animals will be in their winter coats clean and un ruffled. They will be easier to see in the snow covered land. These hunters will look stunning in the images you capture. All it takes is time, early mornings, late nights, big glass, driving icy roads and knowledge of the places you hunt for the hunters. Easy right?
Places like Yellowstone, the Tetons and of course the Parks of the Canadian Rockies will be the most productive hunting grounds for photographing the big predators.
Of course you may not have wolves out your back door. But don’t overlook places close to your home. Look for locations where you can spend time to learn where the predators live and how they behave. There are few places in the Americas that do not have Coyotes nearby. They are weary and that will help you hone your skills to capture great predator photos in winter. If you want to learn more about Predator Photography in Winter check out my new Yellowstone winter workshops. Or just keep reading the next articles.
Next time I will talk about cameras, lens and the other gear that will help you to capture great winter predator photos.

Alaska Brown bear crossing stream
I am just back from another great Alaska Brown Bear Photography workshop at Lake Clark National Park. It is amazing that after nearly 20 trip to this place I can come back with new images. Bears are such characters that they seem to always provide something knew. I am already planning for next year. If you want great bear photos check it out here.

Ok It is not the most creative title but I like the photo.
Iceland iceburg beach
Black sand beaches, Icebergs fresh from the glaciers, and a bit of brisk weather out of the north Atlantic. What could be more fun?
Iceland Thermal Aurora
It has been a incredibly busy summer but now is time to catch up online and with office work. The above photo is from the one night we spent as a group searching for Aurora photos during our recently complete workshop to Iceland. The promise of clear a clear sky quickly faded as a scattered rain event moved it to obscure the aurora. Still with a little luck, a nearly full moon and concentrating on the foreground rather than chasing light in the open sky I was able to capture something over one of the thermal areas.
