Some people just have talent. In his previous life, Big Jim Harris never thought he would become a photographer – this was just a fun hobby he decided to pick up a couple years ago. But the amazing images he has captured in such a short amount of time have given him a new passion in life.
Personally, my favorite thing about his photography is that it is simple & he focuses on the subject at hand. I love how the brown grizzly bear in this photo contrasts so well against the green foliage – you know absolutely that this is the focal point of the photographer. His work is just different from many of the photographers I have seen in my part of the country who try to be more “artistic” with animals & landscapes. It is special.
“Picture This Montana” is a Bozeman based business that is still in development, but with the right marketing & exposure I foresee it taking off in a big way. Jim’s natural talent plus his fortunate luck of living in Big Sky Country outside of Yellowstone National Park is a winning combination.
