You “kids” out there – 07.31.07

Base Camp is just humming along, MT has only 2 spaces available and FL 4. Josh & I are ~really~ looking forward to the week and thank all of you who have signed up for the fun!We’ve had a couple of call from “kids,” what we call those who are in their 20’s, asking about Base Camp. Their one problem, they’re just starting out and simply don’t have the funds to pay for the whole week tuition, lodging and travel. One of Sharon & my goals for Base Camp is to help you young “kids’ out there get started and help further along your wildlife photography. So here’s what we’re going to do since we just hate not helping out kids. WRP is going to provide a scholarship for one “kid” for each Base Camp which will cover half their tuition costs. In order to take advantage of this, you’ll need to jump through a couple of hoops. You’ll need to email us with a brief description of your...

Moving Day – 07.26.07

FedEx hadn’t even delivered my shooting case from Alaska when I was on a plane to TX where I spent today. We received the call on Monday to get out to TX because it was moving day. This one day shoot is a continuation of the Attwater’s Prairie Chicken project I started in May (featured in the current BT Journal). The morning started at an amazing facility at Fossil Rim Wildlife Center. Here, captive APCs are reared and when the time is right, around 10 weeks, they are processed out of the facility and taken to the Attwater Prairie Chicken NWR (the facility producing over 200 chicks this spring). These incredibly dedicated individuals put in hours that would kill the mortal man/women all in an effort to help this endangered species. Folks from the US Fish & Wildlife Service who work at the refuge helped process out the APCs than drove them 4hrs back to the refuge, than walked them out to the temporary holding pens to release them...

LensCoat Wimberley Cover – 07.24.07

I just received a sample of the new LensCoat Wimberley Cover and it’s very nice, very nice indeed! If you have one of the new WH-200s, you know the finish shows every, every little spec of dirt. When it’s cold out, working the Wimberley can be no fun. Both of those problems are solved with this new product. It takes only seconds to cover the main arm, no disassembly of the head is required, it’s a no-brainer to attach! LensCoat has come our with a line of lens caps which are very nice as well. You might want to check them out too! Good stuff to protect your expensive...

Our Project for 2 weeks – 07.20.07

Since I have some unforeseen time, thought I’d post an image of our project subject. The Collared Pika lives at the top of the world, seeking cool temps and snow cover to survive. With changes in the climate, they are “adapting” in some very unique ways in an attempt to survive as a species. Understanding these takes real hardcore science with tons of field and lab work. There’s no way I can explain it all in a blog posting, but you can at least see #16, the pika in the photo. He kept Jake & I very challenged as he went about his daily life. I should add, these guys are about the size of your palm and their southern cousin, the American Pika, are also known as Rock Rabbits. I’ve had a number of emails asking me how I got involved in this project, prepared for and worked in the field with digital and cameback with the images. This is exactly why we started Base Camp! These kind...
