Welcome To BearPhoto
It is with great pleasure we introduce you to our first blog post to our newly launched BearPhoto website. It’s been months in the making, and, we are finally online! Our mission is simple, to share our passion for this apex predator with as many people as possible, through powerful imagery, via our official website as well as on our various social media platforms.
During the spring of 2015, BearPhoto co-founder, Kyle Moore undertook a photographic commission in the Finnish wilderness to document one of the most elusive species of Bear, the European Brown Bear. Unlike their North American cousins, this subspecies of the grizzly is extremely secretive, and so it was through the countless hours in hiding, observing this amazing creature that Kyle’s passion for Bears was ignited. Having returned that same season during midsummer, with good friend and fellow photographer Harry Read, the pair were keen to once again be immersed in ‘bear country’ in totally different conditions. The encounters they experienced each night during that summer with both Bears and Wolverine in such an untouched wild setting, gave the pair an overwhelming impulse to somehow share this amazing experience with other photographers. This was when the seed of thought was planted, leading to the creation of BearPhoto in late 2017.
After building a strong relationship with the team at Wild Brown Bear Ltd, they teamed up together to become the official UK partner as of 2017. Wishing to develop the brand further, the pair formed a working partnership with renowned Swedish wildlife photographer and tour provider Magnus Fredriksson of Rovdjursland (PredatorLand). Magnus has been working extensively at our Finnish location for many years. Being photographers ourselves, we know exactly what is required for the perfect image, so through our close-knit collaboration with our Finnish partners we are able to continually develop new and exciting photographic opportunities in our own way - keeping every BearPhoto trip unique. Lastly through these partnerships, we offer BearPhoto clients exclusive deals, giving unbeatable value for money whilst maintaining the highest tour quality. Our small group size to guide ratio gives our trips a more personal bespoke feel with more one-to-one tuition.
At the heart of BearPhoto there is a simple goal, to observe and document the lives of this impressive family of apex predators. Through various platforms such as blog posts and social media outlets, we hope the share and inspire you to learn more about this enigmatic species. We will be posting images regularly, and we hope you can join us in celebrating the amazing diversity of Bears. You can find BearPhoto on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
