• Goodbye, Farewell and Goodnight

    Krahnpix was always an odd combination of wildlife photos and my eclectic version of wit. I’m pretty sure I was the biggest fan. I suppose that was a natural outcome of pouring my heart and soul into a project. Through good times and bad, I passionately chased wildlife, learned a few tricks of the trade… Continue Reading

  • Sandhill Cranes, Mud and Alligators

    How do I keep my naturally ahem calm and focused demeanour? I have learned to take the shortest, fastest and sometimes unorthodox path between two points.

If a photo is technically more difficult to make, am… Continue Reading

I spent the evening hours in the company of hawks circling, landing and making me smile. In the fading… Continue Reading

  • That is definitely gawking!

    The last time I had this much attention focused on me, I was taking media calls during a crisis affecting my former company. Let me explain. The lowering sun finally brought out a mule buck to a distant ridge. It was just the two of us on a quiet nite. He focused intently while I… Continue Reading
