German GEO Publishes ADP Project on Snowy Owls

Posted Mar. 10th, 2015 by Daniel J. Cox

German GEO Publishes ADP Project on Snowy Owls. Last summer I joined Denver Holt of the Owl Research Institute in the field to document his project on snowy owls. My photographs of last summer’s shoot were recently published in the March issue of German GEO, a highly respected European magazine. My first essay on snowy’s first appeared in the December 2002 edition of National Geographic.

In July of 2014, I returned to Alaska as part of my work with the Arctic Documentary Project to help Denver collect video footage to highlight his ongoing snowy owl studies. As many of you know, I’ve started shooting much more video along with

my still photographs and I’ve been documenting my experiences changing from traditional DSLR’s to the new Lumix hybrid system made by Panasonic. For those who are new to the Blog, we have an ongoing chronicle of my experiences with the Lumix system I call The Lumix Diaries.

Take a look at the video above to see what it was like sitting in a mosquito-infested blind used to capture the images I shot which appear in the German GEO article.

    I noticed your link via Photography News.
    I was fortunate enough to be in the right place at the right time with the right kit to hand. I managed to take a few shots of a magnificent snowy owl in New Hampshire , which I understand are not a regular resident of the area.

      Eugene, you are correct, snowy owls do not typically reside in New Hampshire. However, during some winters they can be seen in several of our northern US. I actually met a lady this past week that photographed a snowy owl in Florida last year in he winter months. That’s the furthest south I’ve ever heard of them being seen.
