Nature spills her secrets to us.

But only on the days we sleep next to film equipment that cost more than our houses. Only on the mornings (does 4am count as morning?) that we follow fresh tracks into the 20-million-acre wildlife wonderland known as the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. (When it’s not known as home.) Only after we’ve learned—for the four-hundredth time—not to rustle. Or stand upwind. Or breathe. Or do anything more than slowly, imperceptibly lift a lens and let a wild drama unfold before us.

Back at the VisionHawk nest, we weave those dramas into stories. Real ones, the kind that let wildlife be wildlife, in all its messy, relatable, mind-bending, hypnotizing forms.

Then, we spill nature’s secrets to the world.
