PHOTOGRAPHY BY TINA SAWICKI
What do I feel about photography? After discovering the incredible challenge and sheer pleasure I felt from capturing the diverse beauty of the outside world, it has become almost a zen experience for me. When I'm deciding to take the day to go out shooting, I'm always saying, "Let's see what I see today". My entire time is spent without stress, worrying or overthinking.
Wildlife is my passion but birds in particular are what gets me really excited when I'm in the field. Seeing a rare bird or what is termed a "lifer" - a bird I've never seen before, can be an incredible experience that only other birder/wildlife photographers can genuinely understand. Some people ask, why birds? It's not only their beauty but they have to be some of the most difficult things to photograph with their quick movements and literal unpredictable behaviours.
I share my adventures and experiences in the field in my blog. Be sure to subscribe using the form below so you don't miss any new posts. It's free and hopefully you will enjoy it as much as current subscribers are.
I not only love to shoot birds and wildlife but I also love to capture that emotional connection you have with your pets. It gives me extreme pleasure to be able to show you your connections and the love of your pet through my lens. I love to share your love of your fuzzy butts with you through my lens.
