Animals seen from below – Andrius Burba


1-Under-dogs-58ec83a50dc9b__880

First it was dogs under water, then it was dogs shaking their bones and cats jumping through the air, later on dogs catching a goodie and the most recent idea that’s fascinated animal fans from all around the world is called “Dogs seen from below”. Sometimes I really wonder why I don’t also have such great ideas. 😉

Harlow & Sage – A dog friendship that touches the world


Rump Day

A post shared by Harlow, Sage, Indiana & Reese (@harlowandsage) on

True friendship doesn’t only exist between human-beings but also in the world of animals. I’m convinced of that. Gregarious animals in particular, which include dogs as well, often have intense social relationships with each other. The story of such a friendship is the one of Harlow, the Weimaraner bitch, and her friends. And it all started with the basset bitch Sage.

Konsta Punkka. In our area quite an unusual name of an unusual 21-year-old guy from Finland. In journals and magazines as well as in diverse articles and online blogs he’s been celebrated as an animal whisperer with a camera and as a wildlife photographer who can look into the soul of an animal for a couple of months now. His Instagram account reflects the success of the subtle emotionality that characterizes Konsta’s wildlife pictures as it currently has 940,000 followers – a number that’s constantly growing.

An afternoon with Mr. Nilsson


Who doesn’t know him? Pippi Longstocking’s Mr. Nilsson. Mr. Nilsson was played by a squirrel monkey, a tender little primate you can normally find in large groups in the warm regions of Central and South America. Well – my present financial situation doesn’t allow me to travel to a Latin American summer but it was good enough to visit the zoo in town.

Paul Nicklen – the one who speaks with polar bears


001

Again and again I’ve come across photos of his face when researching and browsing the internet for inspiring photographers. His face red because of the cold, snow crystals on his eyebrows and a cap covering his forehead. I wanted to know more about this guy, this crazy photographer who peeps out of some holes made of ice, half-frozen. And I’m not only fascinated by his great, impressive and overwhelming wildlife photos but also by him – a humorous and courageous character. Since winter is looming closer and closer with its first snowflakes and its bitter cold, I have a contribution for you as an introduction and as an inspiration to go out into the wilds nevertheless – perhaps outweighing the extremes and limits a bit less – and as a reminder not to forget your camera. There’s a lot to discover! But have a look for yourselves…

I’m a huge fan of black and white photography. I think that sometimes, when it comes to photographs, colors simply distract from the subject or motif. Black and white photography on the other hand is subtle and in some occasions it lets you focus on the essence of a photograph much better than any photo in color ever would allow! The other day I stumbled across a gorgeous black and white photograph of a lion. It was so beautiful and mesmerizing, I simply had to find out more about the photographer and his work.
