ENDANGERED: Fine Art & Photography Contest 2018 Submission.
I have always been inspired by nature. The plants and animals in my childhood yard in the Philippines hosted many an adventure, and led me to a master's degree in biology. But somehow important issues, stories and even the wildlife I so adored lost their magic when defined by columns of scientific numbers. I now strive to convey environmental issues and stories through my photography, without sacrificing the magic. I seek to provide an intimate perspective on nature from around the world, portraying wildlife, their behaviors, and habitats to convey the emotional experience of being there. I minimize post-processing and avoid digital manipulation both in an attempt to stay as true to the moment as possible and because nature is impressive without human intervention. With my photography, I aim to lure viewers more deeply into the natural world than they might venture on their own. I aim to reflect nature.
