A chance encounter in the wild – by Peter A. Dettling
We are very happy to welcome Peter A. Dettling who joins us for the first time this issue as a Featured Contributor, to share the touching moment when he and his father stumbled upon the impromptu “Gentle Touch” between a bull and cow moose.
(Please note that due to the expanded Feature Article on the Tsuu T'ina Rodeo and Pow Wow we did not run a main Photography Article in this issue.)
Peter A. Dettling is a multiple award-winning conservation photographer and painter based in Canmore.
He is also the author of the controversial book The Will of the Land.
Peter’s passion for the natural world has taken him all over the globe: from the Galapagos Islands to Alaska’s far north, and from the African Plains to the Swiss Alps. His images are regularly published in numerous magazines, calendars and books, as well as being featured in leading galleries and museums across North America and Europe, including the world-renowned American Museum of Natural History in New York.
Peter and his photography have also been the subject of several television documentaries in both Europe and North America, including Animal Planet and on the Swiss public TV SRF (Schweizer Radio & Fernsehen) network.

On January 1, 2013, Robert embarked on a new joint venture with two partners, Ahmed Kassim and Yury Rybalskiy, called 360 VR Multimedia – specializing in spherical panoramic photography. Spherical panoramas allow viewers to look in all directions, including up and down, in order to experience a realistic impression of the scene, which is a popular technique used to create so-called virtual tours.
Robert also operates a comprehensive photography website, which provides articles on photography and features some of Canada’s best nature and wildlife photographers.
