I grew up somewhere with wolves in the backwoods of Wisconsin (LOL). I've always been fascinated with animals. Then came the artist creativity rearing its head along the way, Art class in school was my favorite, I enjoyed it a lot.
Life's journey landed me in Montana with my wonderful wife. Frequently going to Yellowstone National Park with all of this nature at its finest moments readily available to me! After timeless travels to Yellowstone you know in general where you should find the animals and off the beaten paths. (Not to mention poor me being stuck in between the Tetons and Glacier National Park). One day telling a friend about it, he suggested purchasing at camera to capture it. That leads me up to this point.
Not wanting to leave the house without a camera in hand. After spending a lot of time in the outdoors scouting and patiently waiting for the brief 1/500th of a second to happen.
A favorite new (relatively speaking) photo outing is spending days on end in Montana and Wyoming (sleeping in the middle of nowhere in the back of our pickup topper) looking for beautiful wild horses. Most people don’t think of horses as wildlife, but there are wild herds still today in our region.
I quote like they say, "Life is like a camera... Focus on what's important capture the good times, develop from the negatives, and if things don't work out, take another shot".
Believe me, it takes a lot of clicking that shutter button before the Magic happens.
