A wildlife photographer shares some secrets

Mike Furtman

My friend Mike Furtman is a phenomenal wildlife photographer. His images have appeared in dozens of regional and national magazines.

Interestingly, he takes many of his photos inside the city limits of his hometown — Duluth, Minn.

Sam Cook, the superb outdoors writer for the Duluth News Tribune, got Mike to tell how he gets such great photos in an otherwise urban area. The article is here. Check it out; it’s a good read, and the pictures are terrific.
