View of Albert Schlechten (1876-1962) with a bear he shot in the Madison Range, Gallatin Canyon, Montana. Possibly taken by his hunting and photography partner, Albert Krueger.
Albert Schlechten (1876-1962) initially established a portrait photography studio with his brother but he spent most of his time and efforts on location and landscape photography. Shortly after his move to Montana in 1900, Albert purchased an 11x14 in. field camera and began photographing the mountains, rivers, lakes and farmland around Bozeman. Established in 1900, the Schlechten Brothers, became renowned for Albert's landscape photography.
