To truly create powerful and emotive images that capture the beauty and behaviour of birdlife, I believe a photographer has to look beyond 'bird in flight' and get thinking.
For many animal species, when the sun disappears below the horizon their activity continues on into the dark. Photographing wildlife after dark opens a new world for the nature photographer.
Drifting away from the classic animal portrait can be fun. I aspire to create images that stand out from the rest—but to succeed, I have to find an extra element to make my images unique. Photographing animals in their natural habitats is one way to add that extra dimension.
