Greetings and Welcome!

I've been photographing Wyoming and all of its wild residents for my entire 38 year career, and it never gets old or tiring. If the good Lord gave me several lifetimes I could not accomplish all that I dream of or visit all of the places in this state I've called home for 57 years.

I have two websites currently that showcase my work at and There you will see galleries of landscape images, Wyoming's wildlife and wildflowers and special galleries of my favorite place, Yellowstone National Park and my favorite large mammal, Bison Bison or the buffalo as many call them. There is a special gallery dedicated to this fascinating creature and I've even made a special tribute print called 'Tatanka and the Iron Horse - the Decimations Haunting Specter' remembering the near extinction of this most significant symbol of the west. My intrigue for this wonderful animal will continue for as long as I can make trips to photograph them.

You can read all about my work, my career and individual pictures by visiting the website, but here I will share with you special places that have particular interest to me, see how I travel and shoot my images, read about some of my past and present experiences, meet friends that have shared special times with me, hear my ramblings about equipment, and hopefully respond to some of your comments.

Well, that is enough of an introduction. Welcome to my world - Images of Wyoming.

A Grizzly named 'Misfire' -first of three part audio interview with Larry Roop

It is March 23 and I've been sitting out a blizzard warning that I think has fizzled, but my thoughts even now are drifting to the mountains, Spring snows in Yellowstone and bears emerging from their winter sleep to roam the wilderness of Wyoming.

I hope you've enjoyed the audio interviews of bear stories from Larry Roop. He spent a couple of more days with me just a short time ago and during that time we made some of our preliminary plans to get into the Park. I was also able to record four more Grizzly Bear stories to be aired in the coming months, but this post brings to you the first of a special three part audio recording about a Grizzly Bear named Misfire. This is a remarkable story, but it was much too long to record in one session. Just double click on the following link to download the story and play it on your default operating system's audio player. So sit back and enjoy the story of a bear named Misfire.

As always, this recording is copyrighted material. It may not be reproduced in full or in part in any form whatsoever, without the express written permission of Larry Roop and Jerry Geist. Failure to do so will result in prosecution according to the infringement laws of the United States.
