Welcome to Sam and Steph's online gallery. Originally from Thermopolis, Wyoming, Sam has had a passion for the outdoors since early childhood. His passions have included everything from camping and backpacking to hunting and fishing as well as working as a professional guide. Chances are if there is something to be experienced in the outdoors, Sam has done it.
Steph is originally from Colorado Springs, Colorado, and has also had a passion for wildlife and the outdoors since childhood. In 2005, Steph met Sam while photographing a grizzly bear in Yellowstone National Park and two years later they were married under the Tetons. Since then, the pair has been devoted to spending every chance they get in the field trying to capture the essence of what wildlife photography is all about.
Every photograph on this site was taken in the wild; you will not find any images of captive animals, such as those in zoos or game farms. As such, no animals were harmed or harassed in the process of capturing these images and no images have been changed or altered in programs such as Photoshop. All images appear as shot.
Sam and Steph currently reside in Columbus, Montana with their outdoor-loving dog, Gypsy. They continue to fulfill their dreams by capturing stunning images of wildlife one click at a time. If you are interested in any images for editorial use, please feel free to E-Mail us using the link below.
