Animal & Wildlife Photography

Photographing animals, whether your cat at home or a cougar in the great outdoors, requires patience, perseverance and an understanding of animal behaviour. Predicting how they will be likely to act or react, helps you to anticipate the moment for a good photograph.

SAFETY FIRST

No shot is worth risking your safety when dealing with animals. Stay in the car if there is a bear or a buffalo on the road. A wild animal's reaction to your presence is unpredictable - particularily during mating season. A telephoto lens or long zoom lens is helpful, and support like a tripod.

PATIENCE

Animal photography requires great patience; like fishing, you often have to wait a long time in the right place to catch the best ones.

Patience applies also with pets and domestic animals. They sometimes seem to be uncooperative when you bring out your camera. Keeping calm and taking things one step at a time often helps the animal to relax.

Skogies Car Wash

Construction for Clean Living

SEPTEMBER 9, 2010 - Dave Skoglund has confidence in the future of car care in Kelowna, as he has invested over $1 Million in renovating Skogie's Car Wash and Gas Station on Harvey Ave.

His project will be featured in the next edition of Octane Magazine - a project I was hired to photograph this week.

The shoot provided a bit of a challenge to find an appropriate background for his portrait amid the construction.

Artistic Bear will guard new Kelowna park

SEPTEMBER 3, 2010 - Long anticipated, Jim Stuart Park was officially opened on the Kelowna Waterfront with the unveiling of an impressive sculpture of a Bear.

I photographed the official event for Stantec Consulting - a local company involved in the design and engineering of the project.

The event, the art and the park are all proving to be popular already.
