Welcome to Alan Bauer Photography, specializing in coverage of the natural
history of the great Pacific Northwest. I strongly believe that no subject
of nature, from a great bull elk in the fall rut all the way down to a small
patch of macro-lichen, is worthy of any potentially disrupting or damaging
action for the purpose of "getting the photograph". I have many times
turned my back from a potentially spectacular photographic opportunity for this
very reason: I value letting my memory appreciate something from our natural
world just as much as I do in capturing it on film!
