Taking the perfect image is a great quest. The buzz that I get when I achieve it is the culmination of a lot of hard work and problem solving to get inside the fear circle of that animal: there is nothing serendipitous about the perfect wildlife photo. And everything in the image is important to me: the animal, the perch, the background, the lighting. But it’s never over: we can always get different shots, different behaviours.
David is a wildlife photographer who only takes pictures of wild animals in their natural habitat. His extensive knowledge of the animals and their environment is the first essential ingredient behind his breath-taking images. The second vital element is research and David studies relentlessly to get under the skin of a new subject before heading into the field. The third is endless patience, its not unusual for David to wait for hours submerged in a floating hide or hidden in a bush in full camouflage to get the perfect shot.
To photograph a great spotted woodpecker from a few metres was an incredible experience and one I’d happily recommend to anyone.Will Cheung
