SNOW WOLF

A staple of my wildlife photography portfolio, the snow wolf is an animal I’m more than willing to venture out to photograph. These beloved creatures are part of the canine family and also go by the names “arctic wolves” and “polar wolves”. They possess an impeccably white year-round coat that seems to suggest that they leap directly from the pages of a fairy tale. Their name is derived from the icy environment that they inhabit, which understandably resulted in their synonymous monikers. While their appearance is not just beautiful, it also functions as camouflage.

The range of the snow wolf includes the northern edge of North America and spreads up to the North Pole and also the eastern and northern parts of Greenland. Their milky fur allows them to melt into the backdrop of their home, aiding in the hunt of their prey. They are actually the only subspecies of wolves to not be threatened by human activity because of their isolated home. 

PHOTOGRAPHING THE SNOW WOLF

As much as I would love to have these animals closer to my reach, I am comforted by the fact that they’re isolated. Their majestic white coats can make them a target for poaching and the last thing I want is for them to be threatened. Countless stories, fables and myths have depicted the snow wolf to be courageous and also fearsome creatures. While their real life counterparts aren’t magical creatures in a literal sense, those who have seen them may say otherwise. Today, wolves are photographed and also studied to better understand them. This attention is great for bringing awareness to their preservation and the conservation of their habitat. Many photographers are drawn to them for their natural beauty and majesty. I have had the privilege of getting to follow and photograph the snow wolf.

The Arctic. Late morning. I have always challenged myself to do things in order to get out of my comfort zone. At times, my challenges work, but for the most part, they result in learning from experience. My Arctic trip was a great challenge. I learned my limits; I learned I don’t like the cold as much as I thought I did. Because of this expedition, I also learned isolation is something I don’t do well with.

I have decided on another expedition to the Arctic to photograph the snow wolf and more. This time I will stay for two months, of course taking one day off every two weeks. In February when the sun does not rise and stay until April when the sun does not set. 
When you learn about and accept your weaknesses, they will become your strengths. 

HOW TO CHOOSE SNOW WOLF ART FOR YOUR HOME

After all, simply walking into the different rooms of a home can speak volumes about the person who put them together.
