Over time I have photographed animals on a number of occasions including livestock, birds of prey, pets and more. Working with animals requires adaptability, patience, compassion and awareness particularly if you are photographing an animal outside of their habitat. Remember animals are not objects but rather living beings and they respond well only when you respond well to them. Any form of fear can negatively impact the shoot, you wouldn’t look good in a photo if someone was afraid of you would you? It is the same for them. Over time I have enjoyed capturing a variety of aspects of animal life on camera, especially social dynamics and look forward to doing so in the future.
