Welcome to the online home of Launstein Imagery! We are a family of internationally-awarded wildlife and conservation photographers based in beautiful SW Alberta, Canada, not far from the town of Pincher Creek and the mountains of the Crowsnest Pass.
We are committed to capturing the beauty and behaviour of the wildlife in western Canada and along the Rocky Mountains, and the challenges they face living in this sometimes-harsh environment. A quote from Jenaya accompanying her work on exhibit in the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History sums up our purpose perfectly:
“I hope my pictures help people care more about the animals I have the privilege of photographing.”
A carefully-chosen selection of our images are available as fine art limited edition prints, with an additional collection of open editions. We have a significant library of stock photography images available for license for publication, advertising and commercial use. You can view our work in person at our Crowsnest Pass Wildlife Art Gallery in Blairmore, Alberta.
We’re excited to be launching a new format for displaying our Fine Art Limited Edition and Open Edition prints and stock images soon, but in the meantime if you have any questions or are interested in ordering prints, greeting cards or calendars, or licensing our stock images, please do not hesitate to contact us directly! Please also consider joining our mailing list by filling out the form here so we can share some of our adventures with you as well as give you a head’s up on new releases and news bits along with some special offers available only to our subscribers. And while you’re online, don’t forget to connect with us on our Launstein Imagery Facebook page and follow us on Twitter @LaunsteinFamily!
