be­fore Tim starts set­ting up his lights or tak­ing pho­tos, he stud­ies the an­i­mal to work out which colours and tones to ex­pose, and the colour of their eyes. “I’ll then use one of my stuffed an­i­mal toys with the same fur colour and face shape to set up my lights. The grey koala toy was an ideal stand in to use be­fore we pho­tographed the Great Grey Owl. With the toy in po­si­tion, I then think about all my lights and ad­just their height, an­gle, power, dis­tance,” re­veals Tim. He also uses dif­fer­ent props to at­tract an an­i­mal’s at­ten­tion to cap­ture good ex­pres­sions. Some wildlife are at­tracted to noises where oth­ers have bet­ter eye­sight and will fol­low props as he moves them.
