Photographing Brown Bears in Alaska
Butch and Linda VanSeters, self-taught wildlife and nature photographers, have been collectively capturing images for over 30 years. They are noted for their creativity in the field, composition, and lighting, as well as their use of equipment, blinds and knowledge of animal behavior. They are members of Camera Naturalists Camera Club of Basking Ridge, NJ. CamNats is dedicated exclusively to Nature. They both previously were members of the Hillcrest Camera Club of Phillipsburg, NJ, from which they have received numerous awards, as well as many from the New Jersey Federation of Camera Clubs and the Photographic Society of America.
Exhibits of their work have been seen throughout the Phillipsburg NJ/Lehigh Valley PA areas. In addition to leading nature photography seminars, Butch has judged notable club competitions in the area.
While Butch and Linda have traveled most of the United States, Canada, Portugal, Costa Rica and Africa capturing the natural wonders of our world, much of their photography is shot in their backyard. It is nearly three acres of wooded and open land, that fosters a safe and welcoming environment for all kinds of wildlife, including deer, black bears, squirrels and rabbits, as well as a wide variety of birds, insects, plant life, and old growth trees. When they aren’t shooting you can find them either fishing, hunting, hiking, gardening, traveling or simply relaxing by their garden pond.
