Field Notes Print Info

These two and I had a bit of an awkward relationship over the summer of 2012. It mostly consisted of them seeing me and then running away.

I kind of have that effect on women I guess…

Anyhow, as I’m fond of pointing out, I’m nothing if not persistant (my wife likes to use the word “stubborn”). So, I kept coming back and getting skunked over and over again throughout the summer.

Until one day…

They decided maybe – just maybe – I wasn’t so bad after all. I kept my approach easy and deliberate, taking my time with each move and being exceedingly careful not to do any scary stuff (snapping twigs, sudden moves etc).

As the morning wore on, I captured a variety of poses – mostly of one or the other browsing on greens – but there was one moment when they were close enough together for a good photo.

And, naturally, not looking towards me at all.

What to do? Easy, I just did a long, sweeping wave with my hand overhead. That got their attention and – CLICK! – I got the shot :)

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!

    I spent a week in Churchill staying on the Tundra Train. Wonderful. The bears were always around. Took turns going on morning and afternoon buggy drives. Took a helicopter ride from the buggy. Ran to and from the helicopter as the bears were there – but not close. Someone asked me what did I do all day. My answer – Watched polar bears, of course. Never tired of that.
    Thanks for your wonderfuol photos. Always great.
