Photographers in Maple Ridge, Langley, Pitt Meadows, Mission and Ridge Meadows BC Canada. We always practice the art and craft of light; about understanding the tools of photography and using them well; and about perception, lighting and the ability to capture a photograph that catches an audience's attention.


B.C. eagle and wildlife photography is a genre for photographers concerned with documenting various forms of bald eagles in their natural habitat.


As well as requiring photography skills, wildlife and eagles photographers may need field craft skills. For example, some animals are difficult to approach and thus a knowledge of the animal's behavior is needed in order to be able to predict its actions. Photographing some species may require stalking skills or the use of a hide/blind for concealment.

In the early days of photography, it was difficult to get a photograph of wildlife due to slow lenses and the low sensitivity of photographic media. Earlier photos of animals were usually pets, stuffed, and zoo animals. These included photos of lion cubs taken at the Bristol zoo in 1854 and in 1864, photos of the last Quagga by Frank Hayes. Wildlife photography gained more traction when faster photography emulsions and quicker shutters came in the 1880s.






Developments like these lead to photos such as the ones taken by German Ottomar Anschutz in 1884, the first shots of wild birds in action. In July 1906, National Geographic published its first wildlife photos. The photos were taken by George Shiras III, a U.S. Representative from Pennsylvania. Some of his photos were taken with the first wire-tripped camera.
