Edwin Kats loves to shoot small, furry animals – with his Nikon D4 DSLR camera. He lives the deep in the middle of a wooded area in the Netherlands where all he needs to do to take a wildlife photo is lean out of his kitchen window. To take the amzing shots featured here, Edwin did more than just lean out of a window. He learned that the best way to get great results is by sticking to just one subject for a long time. He said: “Try to get to know your subject and follow it through the seasons. Try to get them in the snow, against autumn colors and with a nice back-light on a sunny summer morning. Another advantage is that the animals, even the very shy ones, will get to know and trust you. The best possible feeling I can get is to be accepted and trusted by a wild animal.”. Edwin has been a wildlife photographer since 1992 and his work has been featured in prestigious magazines such as National Geographic and BBC Wildlife Magazine.
I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.
