I love animals, whether it is domestic pets, animals in zoos or in the wild where they truly belong. Animals make amazing photographic subjects with their unique habits and wonderful facial expressions. I particularly like to photograph the ‘Big Cats’, and also the domestic cat breeds. Photographing animals lends itself really well to also being able to photograph some spectacular flowers and plants – often when seeking an animal or bird to photograph, you will likely come across incredible plants and flowers at the same time. Also, a visit to any cities’ Botanical Gardens presents a seemingly endless array of subjects to photograph.
“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” — Elliott Erwitt
