Alaska Bears

 

NATURAL CONNECTION

 

 

 

 

The coastal brown bears of Lake Clark National Park, and KATMAI NATIONAL PARK, are one of Alaska’s true wonders.  This area is home to the largest population of brown bears on the planet.

 

Alaska’s Coastal Brown Bears are the largest land based predator on earth.  Large males regularly grow to over half a ton.  During the summer of 2021 I was fortunate enough to spend about a week with these amazing animals in these two areas and were able to photograph them in the meadows of sedge, clamming on the beaches and fishing during the salmon run in Brooks Falls.   

 

These images are full of vibrant detail, and printed large format, will make an unmatched impression for those who visit your home or office.

Another shot of Coyron, a young male puma in Patagonia. We found him on a kill one evening. You can tell him by his nose. He is missing a small piece of his left nostril. Not sure how it happened, but life for young male pumas can be tough. Fighting off other pumas, or hunting guanacos, can be dangerous for pumas.

A flock of parakeets take flight in Patagonia. That was a surprise, I didn't expect to see parakeets in the wild there.

Coyron, male puma from Patagonia, sits overhead on a cliff above Torres Del Paine. Coyron is the son of Rupestre, a famous puma from the area. It was an incredible experience shooting these amazing cats in the wild, and learn more about them. Look for Dynasties II from BBC to learn more about these cats!

I'm excited to try some new IR filters that I have ordered for the sony a1. This is an example of a color IR filter during post processing using some presets from @jamiewindsor, but there is no way to truly replicate it without a physical filter. We'll see how they work soon!

I've donated a wildlife photography lesson with exclusive OKC Zoo access for 4 people to the 2022 OKC Zoo Gala "Under the African Skies". See link in bio. Bidding is going on now and will end in 10 hours. Special thanks to @gbarrutieta for this pic from Patagonia.

In 1954, the Oklahoma Zoological Society (OZS/ZOOfriends), a nonprofit organization, was created to help support the Oklahoma City Zoo in its mission to be Oklahoma’s premier destination connecting people and our world’s vanishing wildlife and wild places. OZS has been making an impact alongside the OKC Zoo in advancing the experience members and visitors enjoy and connecting guests to wildlife, nature and the environment. This is accomplished through fundraising, ZOOfriends memberships and special events.

The shot I missed. Kind of...Here's the story. We had one good morning with great light, open mountains, and cats in the vicinity to make an epic shot. This puma, Coyron, son of Rupestre was our first opprotunity. We were behind him, and before he disappeared around the mountain, he looked back one last time, and I got the first half of this shot. The only thing was, I was too low and only had blue sky behind him. During the morning we had two more pumas pass through the open window moving toward the towers. I was slightly behind the other two as well. I was able to later get some background shots and combine them for this shot, to show an accurate depiction of what I saw that morning. It was indescribable, as you may tell. It was beautiful.

On the last pass, with the famous cat Rupestre, @aaronbaggenstos and @nathanclarkwildlife nailed the epic shot. Please check out and follow them! These moments are rare. And they are not easy, no matter how Instagram may make it look at times. I may never get another opportunity for a shot like this, and it is frustrating to be so close, and miss it, but just witnessing it was even a chance of a lifetime. Im so glad that I finally got to Patagonia, and I do hope someday to return. Until then, this image will be burned in my mind, and I will never forget the shot I missed…
