GRIZZLY BEAR

F5.6, 1/400s, ISO3200

direction easily, or having others in your shot. Most

mornings the lake was relatively calm, so there

were no issues in shooting with the movement of

the boat. Even when it was rough on one day,

it still did not make shooting difficult. Nick was

excellent in getting us into position to shoot and

keeping the boat steady. There was a lot of intense

concentration and watching across the lower lake

as we cruised up and down on our regular route.

WHY IS THE SALMON PHOTO SPECIAL TO YOU?

Our group had talked a lot about getting a shot of

a salmon. Everyone had their own ideas, but it was

decided to shoot to the conditions and to shoot

high speed continuous. I was lucky in being the only

one on this trip to capture a salmon leaping. When I

saw it on the back of the camera, I could not

believe it (jaw-dropping amazed!) and had to wait

till I downloaded the image to make sure it was

sharp, and it was. I could not have been happier!

WHAT ELSE SHOULD WE KNOW ABOUT YOUR

PHOTOGRAPHY?

Conservation and helping to showcase the work

being done in this field is a passion. I have been

very fortunate to go to some amazing places and

to be tasked with photographing some of our rare

and endangered species – my highlight was being

able to photograph the infamous Sirocco Kākāpō.
