Fritz Mueller

Fritz grew up on a rural homestead in British Columbia’s Coast Mountains. Biology was a natural career path for a kid raised in wild country filled with mountain goats and grizzlies. He completed two degrees at University of British Columbia, doing his master’s fieldwork near Kluane National Park in the Yukon. For a decade Fritz worked in northern Canada as a zoologist and environmental assessment scientist. In 2003 he quit his government job to shoot full-time. He does a mix of editorial assignment, stock and commercial photography, but his main focus continues to be telling compelling stories about science, conservation and the interface between people and nature. Fritz is a Fellow of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society. An award-winning photographer, he’s published in National Wildlife, Canadian Geographic, Nature's Best, Ranger Rick, Natural History, Up Here, Defenders of Wildlife, explore, The New Yorker, The Globe and Mail, The Guardian and more. In 2011 Fritz and Teresa's book Yukon - A Wilder Place was published by Greystone Books. Recent commercial clients include the Canadian Tourism Commission, Parks Canada, Yukon Government, Outcrop, Outside the Cube, Council of Yukon First Nations and Government of Nunavut.
