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.

Gimme Shelter, for the ladies

JULY 9, 2011 - Controversial when it was proposed in 2008, Tutt Street Place enjoyed a warm welcome when it officially opened Friday.

Providing social housing to women in need and their families, the building financed through NOW Canada. I was hired by Ledcor Construction earlier this spring to photograph the building before residents moved in.

Additional mobile flash units brightened the playground to balance with the setting sunlight on the western face.

Big heart in little runner

JUNE 2011 - Jonathan Welsh ran a marathon in his socks for Okanagan kids - particularly his brother - at the annual 24-hour relay for the Boys and Girls Clubs.

The spunky 8-year-old ran 120 laps on the Apple Bowl Track over the 24-hour period. Over $170,000 was raised by two dozen teams to fund programs by the Okanagan Boys and Girls Club and the Easter Seals Camp in Winfield.
