Call of the Wild
Wildlife photography is a genre of photography concerned with documenting animals in their natural habitat. It is a challenge, to be sure, but also uniquely rewarding.
As well as requiring technical skills, such as being able to expose correctly, this type of photography requires skills in trekking, field-craft, and even boating. Moreover, most animals are difficult to approach and thus a photographer needs knowledge of the animal’s behavior in order to predict its actions.
While some wildlife photographs can be taken using basic equipment, successful photography requires special tools, such as macro lenses for insects, long focal length lenses for birds, and underwater cameras for marine life. However, a great photograph can be the result of being in the right place at the right time.
Jon photographs a wide range of species, including birds, whales, sharks, and bears. An avid outdoorsman, he travels to the end of the earth to capture rare species before they become extinct. More than that. His years of boating experience allow him to engage with ocean life with an intimacy rarely seen on film.
