While I’ve been kind of silent lately, it certainly isn’t because I haven’t been busy. I’ve been to California with Triple “D” for a California Wildlife Workshop, the Khutzeymateen Grizzly Bear Sanctuary for a photo tour and have been feverishly working at getting current on the accounting for my business. I’m sure you can guess which of those I enjoyed the least….
Anyway, although I’m a bit uncomfortable doing this, one thing about being in business for yourself is that like it or not, you have to market yourself. And with that said…
Have you seen the cover shot on the Summer/Fall 2010 issue of Outdoor Photography Canada (OPC) Magazine? It’s my shot of a Kermode “Spirit” Bear and there is an accompanying article inside about a trip I lead last fall to photograph these wonderful and uniquely Canadian bears. This isn’t my first cover shot on a magazine, but it is one I’m particularly proud of as I believe it may be one of the first cover shots ever published that was made at ISO 3200.
You can read the story about the making of the cover shot on the OPC web site, but if you want to read the feature article yourself, you’re just going to have to wait until the issue hits the news stands in the next week or two.
If that photo and article gets you thinking about photographing Spirit Bears, I still have a couple of spots open on this fall’s tour of the Great Bear Rainforest in British Columbia, Canada to again photograph these special bears.
