I’ve been a nature-lover my whole life, but I began traveling specifically to see animals in the wild back in the early ’90s. Still in my early 20s then, I was fascinated by watching wildlife. My passion grew exponentially as I took up photography and became more adept at spotting hidden animals.

St. Matthew Island and Hall Island are the most remote islands of the Bering Sea, nearly 210 miles from the nearest human habitation. Over the centuries, sheer distance has saved these islands from fur trapping, mining, oil drilling, airstrip building, and other human endeavors that left their mark on so many of the more accessible Aleutian Islands. During the Harriman Expedition in 1899, the islands gained the attention of Theodore Roosevelt, who included St. Matthew in a group of islands...
