Check out the stare down I received from this bison at Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming last month, shot from a safe distance with a 600mm lens. 

No way I would want to get a selfie with something like this - yet people think they are safe enough to do just that. There have already been 5 people this year injured after approaching bison in Yellowstone National Park.

Remember that the NPS says you need to stay at least 25 yards away from these animals! 

As always feel free to share :)

Photographed with my Sony a7R and Sigma Contemporary 150-600mm lens for Canon at 600mm.

If you are not noticing any big difference following your tests, maybe the prime lenses will be a better investment for you.

A Shiras bull moose with summer velvet antlers rests in a field of grass in the late evening at Gros Ventre Campground in Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming, in early summer.

Moose are the largest extant species in the deer family. The Shiras Moose is the smallest subspecies in North America, weighing from 507 to 785 lb at maturity and can be found in Wyoming, Idaho, Utah, Colorado, Washington, Oregon, and Montana.

(As always feel free to share :) )

The moose is a herbivore and needs to consume 9,770 kcal per day to maintain its body weight. A typical moose that weighs 794 lb can eat up to 71 lb of food per day.

After the mating season male moose drop their antlers to conserve energy for the winter, growing a new set of antlers in the spring. The antlers take three to five months to fully develop. Antler growth is nourished by an extensive system of blood vessels in the skin covering, which contains numerous hair follicles that give it a "velvet" texture. In fall the velvet is removed by rubbing and thrashing.

This photo was photographed with my Sony a7R camera and Sigma Contemporary 150-600mm Canon EF lens using a Metabones III adapter.

Sun rays from a setting sun light up the peaks of Teewinot Mountain at Grand Teton National Park in June.

Teewinot towers above Cascade Canyon and Jenny Lake and it's name comes from the Shoshone word meaning "many pinnacles".

Fritiof Fryxell and Phil Smith named the peak when they successfully completed the first ascent of the mountain in 1929. It has an elevation of 12,325 feet.

The photo was photographed with my Sony a7R camera and Sigma Contemporary 150-600mm Canon EF lens.

It is because of light and scenery like this that Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming has become a favorite of mine since I started photographing there back in 2012. It is also why I now offer 2 group workshops each year there as well as private one-on-one instruction.

This photo is a 6-photo stitched panoramic photographed with my Sony a7R at sunset at Schwabachers Landing. It was processed with Capture One Pro, then Photoshop for the stitching, and finalized with Perfect Photo Suite.

Good picture but spoilt with exagerated colour and a too perfect look.

“Streaking Clouds at Sunset at the Tetons” - Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming

As always feel free to share :)

This was photographed at Schwabachers Landing – a popular place to photograph sunsets and sunrises at Grand Teton National Park. Beavers have dammed the Snake River here providing photographers with a mirror-like surface when there is no wind.

I photographed this scene just as the sun was setting behind the Tetons while out scouting for an upcoming photo workshop I was teaching there. I was experimenting with a new filter I purchased from Singh Ray. The filter I used was the Mor-Slo 10-stop solid neutral density filter. This allowed me so slow my shutter speed down to almost 4 minutes, providing me a great streak to the moving clouds.

The scene was photographed with my Sony a7R camera with Metabones III adapter and a Canon 17-40mm f4 lens. It was an almost 4 minute exposure at ISO 100 at f16. I used Capture One Pro and Perfect Photo Suite from +ON1​ to bring the photo back to life.

"Early Morning Storm at the Tetons"
in Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming

It was my last morning photographing at Grand Teton National Park on this particular trip - my first to the Tetons back in 2012 - and wow was I treated to a spectacular show my Mother Nature!

They say the early bird gets the worm. As such, the early rising photographer gets the sunrise shot!

The light from the rising sun perfectly caught the storm clouds and the sky just exploded with color. What a great way to end a week in Wyoming.

Last night I had the opportunity to photograph one of my first rodeos, at the Gallatin County Fair in Bozeman, Montana.

I had fantastic side-lighting the entire evening, and this was photographed just before the sun set. It was photographed with my Sony a7R using manual focus on my Sigma Contemporary 150-600mm lens for Canon EF (I love this lens), and was shot at ISO 3200 at 1/1250s at f8. The photo was processed in Capture One Pro from Phase One​ and Perfect Photo Suite from +ON1

Introduction

I am an award-winning professional photographer whose career spans 22 years and counting. I began my career as a photojournalist working in New England. Published worldwide, some of my publication credits include: The Associated Press, Boston Herald, Connecticut Post, Cape Cod Times, Cape Cod View Magazine, National Geographic Traveler Magazine, New Haven Register, Sojourns Travel Magazine, and USA Today to name just a few. In 2003 I was awarded the New England Press Association’s Photographer of the Year Award, an award presented to me for my photojournalist work throughout the entire calendar year.

A digital photography pioneer, I helped bring the first digital cameras to the Connecticut Post Newspaper in the late 1990’s. In addition I assisted with the implementation and training of the photo staff in the use of digital cameras and equipment at the Cape Cod Times Newspaper in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s. Throughout my photojournalistic career I had the opportunity to photograph Presidents, celebrities, professional athletes and sporting events, as well as local news and events.

Since 2003 I have been selling my artwork at fine art festivals first in New England and now currently throughout the greater Southwest. In 2006, when I moved to Arizona, I left my career as a photojournalist behind and have since been a full-time artist. I exhibit in the finest juried art festivals in CA, CO, AZ, NM, OK, UT, WY, and TX. 

Rather than rely on simply what the camera captures, I enhance each of my photos in my digital darkroom to bring back out and share with the viewer what I personally saw and experienced. It is this personal touch, vision, and unique style that truly separates my work in the photography field.

Since becoming a full-time artist, I have acquired collectors worldwide. I have also been interviewed numerous times on TV, in print, and online. I currently live full-time in my RV traveling, photographing, exhibiting and teaching workshops throughout the Southwest.  

My very popular blog and portfolio is available online at  www.MattSuess.com. Visit for behind-the-scenes essays, tips & tricks, my exhibition schedule, information on photography workshops, online photography classes, and more.
