Professional wildlife photographer Doug Gardner remarked that his trip to Alaska to photograph big game animals was nothing short of amazing. In this video series, Doug shows you how he captures images of brown bear, caribou, moose, and more. In a shallow mountain lake, he photographs the Alaskan brown bear feeding on spawning salmon.
