Up close white wolf pictures in the Arctic by Ejaz Khan

White wolf picture expedition

The Arctic, late morning. When I discussed my white wolf pictures expedition with my family and friends, expressing that I was very interested in photographing the Arctic wolf, everyone’s response was “be careful; white wolves are very dangerous.” I knew they were responding this way because they love me and wanted to see no harm come to me. But the fact was none of them had ever come face to face with a wild wolf. 
So then why did they have this perception that the wolf is a bad/mean animal? I believe it comes from teaching our young ones in school about the “Big Bad Wolf.” It’s a shame we show our young ones to judge even before they can experience things on their own.

Taking white wolf pictures is not easy especially due to the location and whether they live in. The Arctic wolf is relatively unafraid of people and can be coaxed to approach people in some areas. The wolves on Ellesmere Island do not fear humans, which is thought to be due to them seeing humans so little, and they will approach humans cautiously, curiously and closely. In 1977, a pair of scientists were approached by six wolves on Ellesmere Island, with one animal leaping at one of the scientists and grazing a cheek. A number of incidents involving aggressive wolves have occurred in Alert, Nunavut, where the wolves have lived in close proximity to the local weather station for decades and became habituated to humans.

Very little is known about the movement of the Arctic wolves, mainly due to climate. The only time at which the wolf migrates is during the wintertime when there is complete darkness for 24 hours. This makes the white wolf movement hard to research. About 2,250 km (1,400 mi) south of the High Arctic, a wolf movement study took place in the wintertime in complete darkness, when the temperature was as low as −63 °F.
