Photo Lessons – Chad Larsen and Andrea Halwas

We always enjoy taking our dog hiking with us. Being
photographers, this may sound like a counterproductive activity, especially when we’re going out specifically with the intent of capturing nature or wildlife images.

The usual animal suspects came to mind: a bull moose, a whitetail buck, perhaps the elusive coyote.
