“HERE I chose a back­ground that would be very sim­i­lar in colour, be­cause I wanted to ex­plore the sub­tle form of the bird whilst keep­ing pure blue pal­ette. This is lit with a key light (Satel­lite Evo­lu­tion) beam­ing light across then us­ing ring flash as fill-in.”

“THIS was shot in­side and I couldn’t get very close. I had to use a longer lens – a Canon EF 180mm Macro USM. I had put up a black vel­vet back­drop in his en­clo­sure and waited for him to take po­si­tion be­fore tak­ing the shot.”

shoe­bill

“FOR this strong head-on por­trait of the enig­matic shoe­bill, the sit­u­a­tion was very dif­fer­ent, as I shot this at an aviary with very lit­tle con­trol in an open area. I was lucky that there was a dark area be­hind the bird.”
