With my photography, I want others to open their eyes to how beautiful our nature is and to feel that it is worth protecting.

Sometimes I lie for hours in the same place and wait, but just as often I walk around in different environments and see where I land - and who is there with me.

Capturing the personality of the animals I photograph is something I always try to do. It is not an animal the viewer sees, it is an individual. An individual who has the right to exist without further restrictions in his living conditions. I think an emotional connection is important to the will to preserve. Showing in which environment the animals exist and what they do, I think is also a way to increase this understanding.
