What is your advice to an aspiring wildlife photographer?

Be patient. Spend time in the field and double the time you think it will take you. I try to make images, not take pictures, I do this by envisioning a shot, and planning for the light and action of your subject. While I’m in the field, I stay in one position and stay still, but I let the animal know I am there. I let them sense my presence and determine what kind of encounter we have.

Share in the adventure,
right from your phone.

When you sign up for Field Notes, you’ll get monthly updates and stories from me, photographs, and photography tips. And you’ll also get five phone wallpapers with some of my favourite animal encounters — so you can explore the world with me, no matter where you are.

I value the trust you give me in letting me drop into your inbox, and will never sell or share your information with anyone.
