Reclaiming the Night is a feature-length documentary examining the alarming consequences of excessive lighting at night, and why it’s so essential that we bring back the night skies. It’s not just about seeing a mesmerizing night sky. The United States alone is spending over $2,000,000,000.00 every single year just on unnecessary lighting. The side-effects of this wasted energy are weakened human health, damage to wildlife, and poorer visibility and safety on our streets. To find out more, watch the trailer.

No matter what time of day it is, there's always something to shoot. This includes a time when most people are sitting comfortably indoors: night. Night photography offers one of the most enigmatic yet euphoric times to photograph, particularly in areas with dark skies. Countless stars and a vibrant Milky Way Galaxy make night photography a personal favorite time to do photography.
Two of the most misunderstood animals, wolves and coyotes both have an enormously beneficial impact on the landscapes they roam. Wolves have an enigmatic beauty about them that many initially feared, while coyotes and foxes are more reminiscent of an animal that many would like to adopt. Around the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, each have a valuable presence that can't be replaced.
My personal favorite national park, and one of the more underrated in the country, Grand Teton National Park is home to one of the most picturesque mountain ranges in the world. Towering above a massive valley used by dozens of species of wildlife for migration, the Teton Mountains offer new views every day both from Jackson Hole below and inside the mountains themselves where endless hiking trails can be found.
The most beloved grizzly bear of Jackson Hole, Wyoming and beyond, Grizzly Bear #399 first found fame while raising her first set of three cubs along roadsides to avoid a fatal encounter from male grizzlies. Needless to say, both locals and visitors fell in love with her and her cubs. Both she and her daughter, #610, now frequenting the same areas as her mother, each emerged with new cubs in the spring of 2011 and thus the love and admiration of this family reached international fame. Grizzly Bear #399 and #610 are a blessing and delight for Grand Teton National Park and its visitors.
