Moments that occurred when I didn't forget my camera.
Getting close to animals in their natural habitat has been a fascination of mine for as long as I can remember. Once I got a camera and a bow in my hands, it became an obsession.
In photography and bowhunting, there is a rush that comes with getting close to an animal and having it either be oblivious to your presence, or for it to accept you as part of its surroundings. I don’t think I’ll ever tire of the feeling.
Bugling Through the Grass
There’s nothing on this earth like having a mature bull elk bugle directly at you from less than 25 yards. The sheer volume and eerie pitch of these bulls is simply amazing.
This was a really cool and totally unexpected experience. Hiking down from the flatirons right at dark, when I noticed a small fox weaving his way through the grass towards me. I knew it was too dark to get a crisp photo of him, so I opted to try to capture the fluid movement of his gait, and what I was left with was a beautifully abstract wildlife shot.
