Canadian photographer, Troy Moth, was working for magazines like Vogue and Rolling Stone when he decided to drop it all and move to a cabin in the wild. “I worked with some really fantastic people, and had some amazing experiences, but through it all I could never escape this nagging feeling calling me back to my roots.” He wrote in his article for boredpanda. Having grown up in a tent in a tree-planting camp on Canada’s West Coast, his nostalgia for the wild hit him hard.
Building himself a cabin in the forests of Vancouver Island, Moth started to fulfill his former dream of being a wildlife photographer. Since his big move he has, “photographed wild bison in Yellowstone, tracked feral horses through the Dakotas, hung out with a grizzly bear in Montana, and went on a hike with a wolf in British Columbia.”
Moth’s restored goal is simple; he wants people to appreciate nature instead of the consumer goods that have been taking over the globe. “Instead of helping people fall in love with material goods, I’m showing them lovers in the sky.”
Here are some of the magnificent photos he has taken of majestic animals in the wild.
