Captured: Behind the Lens of a Legendary Wildlife Photographer is more than just a photography book—it's a chronicle of more than 30 years' worth of unbelievable moments that only nature can reveal.

And Moose Peterson is more than just a wildlife photographer—he's a storyteller in both prose and pictures.

If you're looking for the ultimate guide to wildlife photography from a man who has devoted his entire career to capturing nature's finest and most rare moments, you'll find it here in Captured.

If you're looking to be transported into the wild to confront a grizzly bear and her cubs, stumble upon a pack of wolves, or capture an owl in flight, you'll find it here, as well.

In the end, you'll come away with invaluable photographic techniques gained through a lifetime of experience and a new appreciation for the passion of wildlife photography.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Distillation of a Life's Work This book is very good but it's not what I was expecting. It is somewhat of a chronological account of Moose's career and his development as a wildlife photographer. There are several themes carried thoroughout the book: being a wildlife photographer can be extremely satisfying, to be good you have to learn the biology (characteristics of the wildlife), you have to have the right gear, and you must pay attention to detail for which many valuable tips are given. The tips are easily worth many times the price of the book. There was only one thing I about the book I didn't like. Moose made a big point of his difficult experience starting out, in terms of low income. But having raised that point, he does not give the reader any actual advice in how to turn wildlife photographs into an income. It's only an issue for me because it leaves the reader hanging. In all other ways, the book is a remarkable insight into the soul of a dedicated and passionate artist who has earned his reputation on perserverance and hard work.
