Photo Gallery: Michelle Valberg’s Wildlife Magic

Ottawa, Ontario-based Michelle Valberg began her career as a wedding and portrait photographer who pursued wildlife photography on the side. But 12 years ago, inspired by a photo trip to the Arctic, she flipped the script and shifted her focus to full-time wildlife photography. Since then, her nature images have appeared on a Canadian stamp and are displayed at Canadian embassies and consulates around the world. RELATED: Learn more about Michelle Valberg's successful wildlife photography career, and how she made this photo of a spirit bear in British Columbia.
