Polar Bear Break Time
Awards / Publications:Used in conjunction to advertise National Wildlife's 2014 Photo Contest
This lovely lady was wandering along the shores of Hudson Bay near Churchill, Canada when we spotted her from our Polar Rover. We quickly backed to her position – and she decided it was time to lay down and take a break!
She would occasionally look around, check us out, lay her head down, look the other way, and so forth. So, we’d wait on the back of the Polar Rover (in -30F windchill) and wait till she looked around. Sometimes the action was fast, most of the time it was just hanging out trying to keep your fingers from freezing.
At any rate, what a privilege to spend time with such an amazing animal. In this photo she looked directly at me for a precious few seconds – and that was all it took!
BTW – no matter how cute she looks, keep in mind she’s relentlessly working out ways to get to you! Polar Bears have zero fear of humans and will attempt to make you into a meal if given the opportunity.
But hey, she’s still cute!
About Our Prints....
I currently sell individual prints only. Each image is custom printed in house by me on our commercial grade inkjet printer. Each print is individually inspected and carefully packaged for shipment.
Please note that if you'd like another type of print (canvas for example) or another frame style, we can certainly accommodate you, just use the contact us page and we'll customize the artwork to make it perfect for your home.
(Note - we are no longer offering framed prints. The potential for damage in transit was very high and the shipping for large framed prints was outrageous, sometimes costing over $100 for larger pieces. Additionally, we've found our clients seem happier when they can work with their own local framing shop.)
Our framed prints are guaranteed for as long as you own them against wear, fading, or deterioration. Loose prints are also guaranteed for as long as you own them provided you have them framed under glass using archival materials. We want you to LOVE your prints, so we offer a refund as long as the print or framed print is returned in like new condition within 30 days.
All prints have a signature in the corner, usually the lower right hand when possible.
Delivery time varies and depends on a number of factors, but we always strive to get your prints delivered to you as quickly as possible. I personally inspect each and every piece before it leaves our building. If I'm out of town taking more photos, it can cause a delay, but a good rule of thumb is that a loose print will ship within 2 weeks and a framed print within 3 weeks. That time is significantly shorter if I'm in town at the time the order is placed. If you need a print done by a certain date, you can contact me and I'll be happy to give you an estimated delivery date.
We are now offering quantity discounts if you are interested in two or more pieces. Simply contact me with the sizes and names of the images you are interested in and I will be happy to get you a quote. The more pieces you order, the better the discount.
Thanks for your interest!
