I can't get enough of wildlife photography and documentaries. So, when a photographer takes the time to show a behind the scenes view of their work, I get really excited.
I've been lucky to shoot some wildlife photography, but I am by no means a wildlife photographer. When I see how much time and patience goes into getting that perfect shot, I'm in awe. So, I choose to enjoy it as much as possible from the comfort of my desk and let it just inspire me.
Wildlife photographer Morten Hilmer is a photographer who never fails to inspire, and his new video series documents his recent trip to Finland photographing bears and wolves. In this first video, he sets the stage for a lot of what is to come in the next few videos. The most entertaining part is just how excited he gets when a bear shows up, even though he has been sitting in a blind baking in the sun for hours. I'm looking forward to the rest of this series since Hilmer always does a great job with showing just what goes into getting these amazing photos.
