Quick journal to give you all a link to a wonderful interview I participated in on zoo photography over on deviantART.
Zoo PhotographyPhotography Week
I can't remember a time when I didn't enjoy visiting zoos. These days, it's become one of my favorite past-times, especially when I partnered up with my sister and we decided to share our photos. What we didn't realize at that point, was that zoo photography is actually a thing - and we'd entered a true community.

Read on to learn more about OrangeRoom, DeeOtter, MonsterBrand, woxys, robbobert, Arkus83, Svenimal and Nikki-vdp and what they have to say about this photography phenomenon.

If you have any interest in taking photos of animals in zoos, or even if you don't, it's a great read. I've kind of operated in my own little photographic bubble over the past 10 years that I've been shooting, so it was really interesting to me to see some of the differences and surprising similarities that I have in my photography approach with some other really distinguished photographers. Definitely worth a read!
In other news, just had a zooapalozza a few days back -- three zoo trips in five days -- with highlights including arctic foxes, clouded leopard cubs (!), timber wolves, red wolves, jaguars, grizzly bears, etc., etc. I am going to be editing the photos from now until the apocalypse, but in the meantime, hopefully it will actually spur me to get back into the swing of posting things. We'll see! Hope everyone's doing well.
