photo of arctic wolf in snow all white

Upper Arctic. Late morning. Firstly, I prepared for this expedition in New York to capture a photo of arctic wolf 7 months ago. I called trackers to take me out on the ice, researching airline tickets to the Arctic, researching the best times to travel, and also researching Arctic wolf behavior; the list went on and on.

The amount of planning and preparing that goes in a photography expedition to capture a photo of arctic wolf of this kind is so enormous. It takes a lot of effort both on the person that will physically go on the journey, and the people support the trip. Small details from food to equipment to clothing etc. are all put on paper and taken care off to expect any good results. 

A well-prepared project can expect a great result. It’s your job to meet the expectations of all involved.

Why is a photo of Arctic wolf is very rare?

It’s so difficult to take pictures of arctic wolves, which are also known as white wolves or polar wolves. Firstly, they are a subspecies of grey wolves native to Canada’s Queen Elizabeth Islands, from Melville Island to Ellesmere Island. Arctic Wolves also have achieved life spans of over 18 years in captivity; however, in the wild, the average life span is only 7 – 10 years or so. They are a medium-sized subspecies, distinguished from the northwestern wolf by its smaller size. Its whiter coloration, its narrower braincase, and also larger carnassials. Since 1930, there has been a progressive reduction in size in Arctic wolf skulls, which is likely the result of wolf-dog hybridization.

IN SEARCH FOR THE ARCTIC WOLVES

My passion has always been pushing the boundaries of human endurance, coming as I did from the bylines of Mumbai to the Big Apple and exploring the harshest extremes of nature. The lure of Alaska had beckoned, but now I wanted to push the envelope beyond that to the rugged terrain of the icy arctic snow to Grise Fiord, in the northernmost part of Canada, population 132. The planning for such a journey has to be meticulous and took 7 months with someone finally willing to take me to space where no USA photographer had gone before & tracked the Arctic Wolf at the North Pole….
