Mike and Nicole

You may know us from the software training company we own and operate. And while we do spend a lot of time running our business, we try not to be so busy that we can't pursue our other passion: creating nature and wildlife photographs and videos.

My love for the outdoors and wild critters is rooted in the heritage of being a Montanan. It's only in recent years that I discovered photography as a way of expressing what I see and how I feel when I'm out in nature.

For me, making a photograph is all about the experience of being in a place and observing the natural behavior of wildlife. I don't photograph animals that are pets or are confined to zoos or game farms, simply because they aren't my subjects of interest.

I love a good story! Whether I'm reading one, hearing one, or telling one, I like how all the elements work together to make the audience feel a certain emotion.

I also love taking the scenic route and visiting new places, whether it's national parks, scenic byways, or hiking trails. Wherever there is wildlife (or wildflowers!) in their natural environment, I want to be there observing, experiencing, and if the opportunity presents itself, crafting a good story.

You'll find some of our favorite photographs on this site. You can see more of Mike's photographs on Flickr and 500px. To follow our travels and hear more stories, subscribe to our blog.

We hope our photographs and videos inspire you to explore the natural world, wherever you may live!
