Most of my work is wildlife. Although I do other genres.

My preference is North American predators. The favorite being gray wolves. My love for wolves goes back to when I was a boy, I have always found them fascinating. Having shot at various locations, I have found the choice location for photographing wolves, grizzlies, and other large animals is Yellowstone.

Your work is just beautiful. It must take oceans of patience and a great deal of skill to capture the animals on digital media and film. Thank you for offering it for us to see.

After reading American Wolf: A True Story of Survival and Obsession in the West, I had to see images of "0-6". Yours are stunning! I have been to Yellowstone several times photographing in the Lamar Valley and had the privilege this year of seeing the Wapiti pack on a bison kill. It was incredible to watch these magnificent animals. Thank you so much for your photos! I have them bookmarked and will look at them frequently.
