Expressive Wildlife Imagery: Learning from Mom

August 19, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Life's lessons from wildlife.


One of the most challenging yet rewarding aspects of wildlife photography is to create expressive images that stimulate different emotional responses, particularly as they relate to our own experiences in everyday life.


Occasionally I experience this response as I am making the photograph, but quite often it isn't until I review and reflect on the images that this parallel is drawn.


This young bear was watching his dedicated mother catch fish - studying her ever move with intense concentration.  One day its very survival will depend on it.  If this cub is a female, she may have to provide for her own cubs in a couple of years.


We all learn from others, and I am very thankful to those who passed along guidance to me as I was growing up.
