Adventures of a wildlife photographer - 5 minutes of terror

July 30, 2013

Photo by Rocky Holland – This picture was taken the same afternoon as our encounter, showing the size of these Alaskan Brown Bears, compared to a human. The fisherman did survive.

I am often asked the question at art shows or when I’m speaking on photography, if I’m ever worried about being attacked by the wild animals I photograph. I tend to just laugh it off with a joke or tell the audience that has never even occurred to me when I’ve been out in the wild. After all, I’m just a photographer, I’m invincible. This train of thought changed dramatically for me on the afternoon of July 9, 2013.
