Max Ellis is a professional photographer and freelance illustrator from the U.K. He studied photography at University of Brighton and has more than 15 years of professional photography under his belt. He currently vasscilates between pure photography and photo illustration, but what really caught the web’s imagination is his series of perfectly timed images of adorable squirrels. Humans have always been suckers for anything warm and furry and squirrels are no exception. It took Max an incredible amount of patience and a whole lot of garbage shots to capture the perfect images. He even made miniature toys for his furry subjects and bribed them with seeds and treats. But don’t worry, no squirrels were harmed in the making of the series.
