Feature story photography
in the March/April 2016 issue of Ducks Unlimited magazine.
Photos from our September, 2015 trip into Ontario’s Quetico Provincial Park, adjacent to the Boundary Waters.
Joe Richard is a a Florida writer, photographer and fishing guide. His account of his first trip to the Quetico Provincial Park with us last spring is the lead article in the Spring 2015 edition of The Boundary Waters Journal along with two of his photographs and three of mine. The cover shot is of Gary Fiedler on his 220-day solo canoe trip (either a “selfie” by Gary or by Dawn LaPointe of Radiant Spirit Gallery in Duluth ). We crossed paths our first day out and Gary found the new fishing shirt I left behind on a portage on a hot day and he wore it for the rest of the trip, then sent me a couple beautiful prints in exchange. The paddle shot was taken in 2011 on Kahshahpiwi Lake.
Photographed for a private collector, these artifacts are a small selection of his collection. Layout design by Stephen T. Bender. A limited edition of twenty 17″ x 22″ archival ink-jet prints are available for $150.00 each (plus S&H), with 20% going to the Bur Oak Land Trust for preservation and maintenance of natural areas for the enjoyment and education of the public in Johnson County, Iowa.
A friend of mine is an arrowhead collector and asked me to photograph this collection: 25 boxes, each representing a year from 1990-2011 plus several from earlier years. Most of the arrowheads were found in Iowa. We are planning to put together several “best of” collections and photograph them, experimenting with different backgrounds. Hope to have some fine art prints and posters ready for sale this fall.
The annual spring canoe trip to Quetico Provincial Park May 27-June 3 has come and gone but here are some memories…
