Birds

 

My portfolio consists of ‘birds. Bird photography is a serious piece of patience as well as good equipment support. You wait for hours, and most of the time you don't get a good shot but you try again and again, and I think that's the beauty of bird photography. The logic that the more difficult thing is the more valuable thing.

I aim to aware of these animals that more beneficial to nature to people and who we share nature with. Watching and photographing them in their natural environment, and through these photographs, at least for the time being, I strive to pay attention to these beauties.

Running after them is extremely enjoyable and is a kind of therapy despite all the ordeal.
