Gold in Nature/Wildlife, Gold in Portraiture/Other, 1st Place winner in Nature
Photos taken at the Los Angeles Zoo.
I feel a great connection with the animals I photograph, many of
which are endangered. This is a part of a series of animal portraits
where I utilize lighting and focus on the eyes to emphasize this
connection and to show them at their most beautiful. I love
searching for and finding moments when the sunlight illuminates
their intense and fascinating faces.
