A passionate wildlife photographer, Jim has photographed many of North America’s rarest and most elusive mammals by combining a blend of traditional naturalist skills and modern technology. His work has appeared in numerous books and magazines, and he is a frequent speaker and photography presenter on behalf of conservation causes. Currently working towards a master’s degree in biology, Jim strives to share the stories of native North American wildlife and promote the conservation of endangered and imperiled carnivores, including grizzly bears, wolves, black-footed ferrets and wolverines.
When he’s not working in the field, Jim enjoys exploring new places and trying new meals with his wife, Lana, as well as trail running, rock climbing and skiing. He’s a lifelong fan of the blues, plays a bit of harmonica now and then, and is trying his hand at growing some super-hot chili peppers.
