W hether black or brown bears, observing and photographing them is one of the most exciting activities I can imagine. My bear photography has been done in Alaska at McNeil River for brown bears and at Anan Creek for black bears. Images from these areas can be seen in their respective galleries. On my first visit to McNeil River we observed 63 bears in our field of view at a single time. Truly an awe inspiring event. I have incorporated my images from two trips to McNeil River into a program that I share with clubs and organizations in New England.
