White Arctic fox photo in the snow
Svalbard. Late afternoon.
Taking White arctic fox photo is a big challenge. It was freezing; we traveled north on snowmobiles in search of polar bears and blue foxes. The landscape was incredible, but we could not find any of the animals we were looking for.
After traveling for hours, we got lucky with this white arctic fox photo. Her energy just drew me in, she Posed and was not skittish, reminding me of a fashion model. Taking the time, moving around, composing to find the best angle is something I do in a very controlled environment at my studio for fashion shoots. But for wildlife photography; I am at the mercy of Mother Nature.
For a successful fashion shoot, we control our environment in the studio to help with the overall outcome.
If everybody does their part to help our environment, generations to come will be able to enjoy the outcome.

Facts about the White Arctic Fox
The white Arctic fox photo is difficult to expose correctly because it is a small animal reaching 26 inches in length and about 6.5 to 17 pounds of weight. Their bushy tails are about 13.7 inches long. They are covered with thick white fur during the colder winter season and have grey-brownish fur during the summertime. These seasonal color variations in the fur of the white Arctic fox acts as camouflage protecting them from predators.
Predators of the white Arctic fox are golden eagles, polar bears, wolverines, red foxes, wolves, and grizzly bears.
The white Arctic fox generally eats small animals it can find. Its diet includes rodents, hares, birds, eggs, fish, and carrion. The white Arctic fox scavenges on carcasses left by larger predators such as wolves and polar bears.
