Larry Hoelzeman scans the boreal forest for moose and polar bears from a helicopter over Wapusk National Park, and Cape Churchill.
I recently finished guiding my first Ultimate Churchill Expedition, which includes a helicopter excursion to view polar bears, moose, and the subarctic landscape from a raven’s perspective. Here are some unique images that I was able to capture. First, check some footage I shot with my canon 7D and 16-35f2.8
I had previously thought that photographing from a helicopter would be difficult, but I was pleasantly surprised to learn that we could shoot out of an open window. Photographing with my 16-35 wide angle was very easy, and perfect for getting the wide landscape shots, but I was also able to get some good stuff of wildlife with my fixed 300 f4.
