Be Careful What You Wish For
by F.M. Kearney | March 10, 2016
This article was originally published in NANPA (December 2015). Used with permission. Living in New York City (or any other large metropolitan area) and choosing to pursue a career in nature photography can sometimes be an uphill battle. Local parks and botanical gardens are fine for floral portraits and intimate landscapes, but if you ever desire to capture anything resembling true wilderness, a venture beyond the confines of city limits is definitely required.

Northern Elephant Seals

That’s what I saw during the breeding season at Piedras Blancas, on the central California coast, early last year. Each adult male seal weighs up to 2270 kg (or 5000 lb) and reaches a length of roughly 4.5 m (15 ft). Females are smaller, at a weight of 770 kg (1700 lb) and length of 3.7 m (12 ft). Male seals begin arriving in November, when they fight viciously with one another to occupy and hold a territory. Females arrive in early January, giving birth to pups within days of hauling out on the beach. The experience overwhelmed my senses, as males used their resonant proboscis to bellow deeply and earn the right to breed with a harem, pups and females called constantly to maintain contact, and the stink of seal was ever-present. It was more entertaining than the best scripted movie—a photographer’s delight. Continue reading »
