Photographing animals is challenging. Especially if a very specific outcome is wanted. It requires a lot of patience and a lot of time. To get a natural looking photograph of a pet, the animal needs to relax into your presence which calls for knowledge about how they interact with their surroundings. I've been in training over the course of a year to learn animal communication and behaviour, something that now allows me to approach and share the same space with an animal in a deeply respectful and interacting way thus bringing me closer to natural behaviour and "getting the shot"
Seagulls are amazing. They are impeccable pilots and cheeky survivors and one of my favourite subjects to photograph on my time off. Private project.
