Spring is about new life...the flowers are blooming, the weather is warming, and the birds are chirping. The smell in the air can only be beat by the high-pitched "peep" of a baby duckling. Newly born, and doing his best to keep up with mom, this duckling was running for what seemed like the first time. Stumbling a few times did nothing to slow him down, as he crossed this gravel road and was re-united with mom once again.
Equipment: Nikon D700. Nikkor 300mm VR lens.
Award winning wildlife photographer Matt Hansen captures the drama and beauty of wildlife in a dynamic and fresh way. His photos have been used by leading companies and publications; including Apple, inc., ESPN, Inc., Fuji Film, Men’s Health Magazine, Washingtonian Magazine, The Daily Mail (UK), Cincinnati Zoo, Georgia DNR, and many more. Matt states, “My goal is to show people how incredible our world is…Portraying wildlife in its environment is my way of doing that.” “Whether it be something as small as a frog, or as large as a whale, there is always beauty and wonder surrounding us,” Matt adds. When Matt’s not photographing, he’s probably at the piano, writing music. Graduating from Berklee College of Music in Film Scoring, Matt has composed music for networks such as National Geographic, Animal Planet, A&E, SyFy, and more.
