Photographing Grizzly Bears ~

Photographing grizzlies and wolves is one of my biggest thrills much to the peril of the rest of my photographic checklist. I often retrospectively kick myself for driving past beautiful sunrises and georgous scenery in the hopes of getting to a good bear spot where a bear may or may not show up. The anticipation of the thrill of finding then photographing these amazing animals causes me to jettison all photographic pragmatism.  When I was a younger adventure seeker I would challenge the rivers and ski slopes for my adrenalin rush, now I am older and slower and find I get the same adrenalin rush standing stationary behind a tripod photographing carnivores. Perhaps not the best decision to make when you are older and slower but adrenalin rushes aren’t necessarily about safety or common sense.

It is my pleasure not only to photograph these magnificant creatures, but also to lead photography tours to show others how to shoot them. Sharing my knowledge with Yellowstone visitors not only enables me to spend more time photographing in the field, sharing this resource with the public helps the grizzlies in the political arena as most who encounter them become an advocate for them.

Moose in the Tetons

It is a rare day when you can capture a perfect reflection of the Grand Tetons in the Snake River with the bonus of a moose or two. As a photography guide as well as a landscape photographer, I have been to this spot hundreds of times and this day made me very happy!

A Venice Evening

Photographing Venice Italy is amazing at any time of day but it positively glows shortly after sunset. Photographers call the time after sunset before it gets totally dark the “blue hour.” It is a great time to take photos, especially cityscapes, as the intermingling of natural and artificial light creates dramatic effects and the world is imbued with blue. The juxtaposition of warm and cold light can be quite pleasing.

Close encounters with grizzly bears are always fun, it its the exhilaration

Cortina d’Ampezzo – shooting the Dolomites, take two

By Daryl L. Hunter

In the spring of 2017 a photo assignment, once again, took me Naples Italy. I again had the opportunity to return the Dolomite Alps, a mountain landscape that blew me away on my first visit. My first trip to the Dolomite Mountains in 2014 I had a marvelous time exploring the mountains of South Tyrol and Trento basing out of Bolzano or Bozen, as the locals know it. The Italian Dolomites offer a unique corner of the Alps with distinctive geology and a fascinating blend of cultures. This time I will hit Cortina d’Ampezzo.

 

Age and pursuit?

I am at that awkward stage of aging where I sometimes forget about it, usually while in pursuit of an elusive photo with a rapid expiration date. It wasn’t until I was forty-three when I took on the task of fatherhood. Another task I added concurrently was to not appear to be the old guy to my young son Scott. I went too much pain to appear to be fifteen years younger, activity wise, than the weary carcass beneath the weary smile.
