AMERICAN BISON PHOTO SIZE AND FINISH OPTIONS

Yellow Stone National Park. My guide and I were walking when I spotted this lone bison. I asked my guide if we could approach him. He reluctantly agreed as this bison was in deep snow. We took ten steps forward when suddenly, my guide vanished, falling into a deep snow-covered hole. While I did not want to leave the camera unprotected near the looming bison, it was far more critical to rescue my guide from the hole. I put down my equipment and helped him climb out.
In the meantime, the bison had moved closer; he stood only ten feet away.
It gave me a thrill, but my guide was far from pleased. I gave in to his wishes, and we left the area… after I had captured a few shots of the bull.

TRAGICALLY, CLIMATE CHANGE HAS PUT THE GREAT AMERICAN BISON AT RISK
As I traveled to take bison photography, I learned more about this majestic animal. In the United States, Yellowstone National Park is the only place where bison are seen in large numbers – as captured in my black and white art prints for instance. CLIMATE CHANGE has drastically impacted their habitat and created hotter summers, higher rainfall, and also reduced snowfall. This directly impacts their food sources and also harms their development. We have compared black and white art photos from 1965 and also observed a significant reduction in size over the past 50 years. The fossil record also confirms its size reduction over the years.
What’s more, climate change often leads to wildfires – which is an even bigger threat for all wildlife. Keep reading to learn how purchasing my bison photography can help protect and also restore the bison.
