Besides sports photography, I enjoy shooting other subjects to keep my creative juices flowing. Otherwise I think I would burn out covering only sports. Two of my favorite genres of photography other than sports are wildlife and landscape. Lately I haven’t had much time to do either. I would prefer to jump in my Jeep and head for the hills to capture sunrises and sunsets as well as stock some of my favorite animals, but due to my schedule this rarely happens.
But I am lucky enough that I only live a few miles from the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle where I am a season pass holder. When I have some free time on a day off or even before a sports assignment, I like to escape to the zoo and photograph the animals. One of my favorite animals to photograph are the wolves. Unfortunately, they are usually pretty lazy and not moving around much. However, a few weeks ago on a drizzly, warm, muggy day, they were finally active!
Below are a couple of my favorite photos from that day. Enjoy!
