Sleeping Bear

Rest assured, we were always at least 50 yards from the bears and with a group of 12 photographers and 3 guides I always felt safe. If you are wondering if it was cold, I can tell you YES, it was cold. Very cold. The temperatures ranged from -10 to -30 below zero. One of the best trips ever.  I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I enjoy sharing them with you. If you have questions, please feel free to reach out to me at

The photos in this Post Office exhibit were taken on a polar bear expedition to a place called Churchill, in Manitoba, Canada.  Many companies offer similar trips but the company I chose promised that I would be "on the ground" with the polar bears. And so I was. The experience of being at eye level with these apex predators was truly amazing, and one that I will never forget.
