••• ABOUT THIS EPISODE •••
Wildlife photography – Foxes & Deer | Behind the scenes is all about how to get close to the animals and how nature can always surprise you when you are being quiet and humble.
It’s early morning and I am in the field with my camera to discover the wildlife. I am especially looking for the deer. This day the I got the best experience ever on this location…
Light is perfect for wildlife photography and everything seems to be a perfect photo trip. Nature did not know anything about my plan for the day, so a surprise was waiting for me out there!
It is my intention to make behind the scenes videos from my upcoming photo adventures, and in the winter I am planning on making a video from my photo expedition to Svalbard.
So please subscribe to my channel if you want to get notified when I upload a new video about nature and wildlife photography.
••• WHO I AM •••
My name is Morten Hilmer and I work as a professional nature and wildlife photographer. In a serie of short 4K videos I will share my fascination of nature with you and invite you behind the scene when I am out photographing the fascinating wildlife, the stunning landscapes and the wild nature. I work as a ILCP photographer, and nature conservation is very close to my heart.
“I have served in the Danish military special unit, the Sirius Patrol, for two years and that has given me the skills and confidence to operate alone in the arctic regions. I have spent two further years in the northern parts of Greenland meeting the local people and working on photography projects. My driving force is a sense of adventure and my fascination for nature, and my curiosity and empathy for other cultures has led me to many remote regions.”
