bird hunting photography

Open Season

Waiting patiently in the tall grass along the banks of a cold Minnesota lake, two hunters perform the ritual of the hunt.

This is a collective project with Jules Ameel to capture the mood and environment of a duck hunt.  Its always fun to work along side other creatives in the field, bouncing ideas, angles etc off of each other as the shoot goes.

We spent a full morning wading around in the water with our two hunters in the tall grass. The hardest part of this shoot was trying to not trip in the water while holding our cameras.
