Canadian Geographic Cover – Wolf Photo
News and Notes for January 2015 – Happy New Year everyone! I left on holidays on December 20th and got back into the office last week and it seemed like the world devolved more than just a little bit in the short time that I was away. I returned to Canada to news of a coyote killing contest in Alberta Beach near Edmonton, of an extended wolf cull in north-central Alberta, and of a newly proposed wolf cull in two separate regions of British Columbia. And as many of you already know, I don’t usually sit around and let news like this waft past with me without first giving it the sniff test. If it smells like sh*t, then I’m usually on it trying to toss it out the door, so stay tuned this week for a number of blog posts regarding wolf culls and predator killing contests and what you can do to help.
In the meantime, I wanted to quickly catch you all up on a few tidbits from the past few months. For those of you in Canada, you can see my work on the cover and interior of the latest Canadian Geographic magazine on newsstands now throughout the country. The feature article is a timely piece about the state of wolves in Canada, titled “Beauty or Beast: Exploring our Love-Hate Relationship with the Wolf.”

Note that I recently had a cancellation on my Jasper Wildlife Photography Workshop from February 17th-22nd in Jasper, Alberta, Canada, opening up one spot. If you’re interested in learning how to track and photograph wildlife with me and a small group of like-minded photographers, then please check it out and let me know if you’re interested in attending. The cover shot of Canadian Geographic magazine above was taken on this workshop in 2014!

Thanks everyone, good luck in the New Year and stay tuned for lots of wolf news in the coming days.

On a completely different note, think you will ever post your post-processing workflow? Highly interested in how you go about processing your excellent images.
Thanks, and again, congratulations!

Very beautiful pictures of Mother Nature. I hope efforts like yours indeed help to save these gorgeous forests and creatures. And also I hope to make a little support for them, with my voice, my pages…

Congratulations! And thanks for not only bringing the wilderness into people's homes through your photos, but also for walking the talk through the advocacy work you do.
