Salt Lake City, Utah
There’s nothing more thrilling than finally finding the animal you’ve been searching for, and getting the shot you wanted after days, weeks, months, and sometimes even years of trying. Wildlife photography is such an exciting challenge. No matter how proficient you are with your gear, you never know what you’ll get, if anything, when you go out to shoot wildlife. For me, that’s part of the appeal. The failures make the successes that much more exciting. I love the time I get to spend in nature as I watch and wait for wildlife. I love the moments I get to spend with the animals, observing their behavior and learning about their habits and personalities. And I am so fulfilled by creating an image, a piece of art, that I can share with others. We have an incredible community of wildlife photographers here in Utah. I cherish the time I’ve spent, the moments I’ve shared, and the friendships I’ve built as I network with others who share my passion. Being able to look at your friend and say “Woah. That just happened!” after a great wildlife encounter is priceless. Wildlife photography is so fun!
