Bear photography is one of the most spectacular forms of wildlife photography on planet earth.  It's also one of the most popular, with summertime Brown Bear photography in places like Alaska and Yellowstone National Park being a yearly ritual for many wildlife photographers.

In this episode, I dive into the many strategies and pro tips for bear photography to ensure you get the absolute best photos during your bear photography adventure.  While most of my examples speak about Brown Bears, you'll quickly realize that these tips are very generalizable for all bear photography, be it Polar Bears, Black Bears, or any of the 8 species of bears found around the world.
