This is one of the most exciting photos I have ever taken. I spotted this bull elk in the wild, deep in the Canadian Rockies. I had seen a black bear earlier, and a moose, and I missed the perfect shot on both of those. So when I came upon this elk, I was ready. I came in real slow from behind, downwind, so as not to disturb the majestic creature. I got closer and closer till I felt I was staring at it eye to eye. I was terrified, to be honest. It was so gigantic but so noble and stately. What a creature. I had no zoom on my lens, I was using a 16mm prime lens, so I was that close to it. It stood to pose for just a moment, till it gestured that it wanted me gone, and that was it. I was excited for days at the ordeal. I can’t believe I have the photo to prove it.
I made this website and have taken each photo with a lot of love and a lot of hard work. I think there is nothing more disappointing than looking forward to a great product, then getting it and it’s junk. While that would have been a lot easier, I did not want that to be the experience of my clients. So I sourced products that are the best of the best; outstanding quality, good packaging, and a luxury finish. I researched and ordered prints from dozens of companies and finally found a printer that was head-and-shoulders above all others. For example, most printers use a combination of 4 inks, this printer uses 12 inks to ensure each color is true and beautiful. The paper they use is the finest in the world and fit for museums. Additionally, gloss prints will have a harsh glare on the photos so I only print what is called “enhanced matte” so there is no glare from any direction and any time in any lighting but each print has been enhanced for vivid details.
I hope that my photographs might be an inspiration to someone and a “mental escape” of hope and beauty. So far, I don’t sell a lot of prints (yet). But each dollar made through this site is used to help someone else who is less fortunate and in need. I greatly appreciate your visit to my site and I hope you purchase something that I know you’ll love. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please drop me a message and I’ll get back to you right away – Joshua
