Chris Fallows Has Spent Most of His Life Into the Wild Immortalizing the Wonders of Nature Through His Camera

Chris Fallows

Chris Fallows is an amazing wildlife photographer who has been working with wildlife his entire life and has always had a deep passion for all forms of nature. During his life, he has had the chance to photograph wildlife on all seven continents many times and the highlight of it all was in 1996 when he had the chance to discover the world-famous breaching great white sharks at seal Island in False Bay.

Earthwonders reached out to Chris to ask him more about his work during his lifetime.

” I worked with these incredible sharks with our team at Apex Shark Expeditions for the last 30 years. Today I specialize in limited edition Fine Art photography that celebrates the magnificence of each species. My aim is through the sale of my works, many of which sadly will never be replicated due to the wildlife or behavior no longer occurring, to raise funds to buy land to protect and restore wildlife habitat in Africa.”

Chris Fallows

His passions for wildlife started from an early age while growing up with a father who was a keen wildlife photographer as well. He inherited that interest from him and was lucky enough from the age of two to see many of Africa’s wildest places and though this exposure he developed an intense love of nature.

Chris has a very rich portfolio of wildlife photography. He shares that he’s lucky to have had the amazing career and experiences he did during his life, especially the intimate nature of these experiences with completely wild animals. Being a wildlife photographer comes with a set of challenges as well but Chris has another companion to share his experiences with so nothing is impossible for these explorers.

“My wife Monique and I generally are self-guided and we travel to some of the world’s remotest locations where we often camp in extreme heat or cold. It is the best way to intimately hope to encounter wildlife where the animals can choose to be comfortable with you in close proximity. We also both love the solitude and peace that comes with this isolation,” explained Chris for Earthwonders.

The photographer also told us a bit about his working process: “Generally we spend anywhere from 100-150 days at sea nowadays, it used to be over 200. We then spend about 100 in the bush, either in Africa or elsewhere.

I focus on iconic species such a great white sharks, humpback whales, iconic tusker elephants, or magnificent lions. We seek out locations where we know we can spend long periods of time with our subjects allowing them to become comfortable with us. I generally use medium-wide and wide-angle lenses to capture a scene around my subjects and like to use innovative angles that set my work apart from convention.

Chris Fallows

I am incredibly grateful for all the once-in-a-lifetime opportunities we have had in the company of many of the world’s most famous animals and hope that my work serves as an inspiration to conserve what is left. I feel that building up a portfolio of what we have already lost serves as a way to wake up humanity to what we have done and at the same time use many of my other images to show people what we still have to fight for. The world will be so much poorer without these truly incredible creatures.”

Photographer Focuses His Camera on Squirrels to Capture Their Emotions, and the Results Are Adorable

Photographing squirrels isn’t an easy task. Whenever they feel threatened by the presence of humans, they start running with all they got. However, Johnny Kääpä has dedicated most of his time to do that and has managed to pull out some incredible shots. Johhny has been photographing squirrels for a couple of years. What he looks for in a photograph is the feeling it gives out. Now dealing with squirrels it can be quite challenging to be able to capture their emotions, but this talented photographer didn’t fail to serve.

“I have no idea if the squirrels have a lot of emotions, except hunger, fear, and sleep, but I would like to think they do. And I always look for pictures that seem to express those feelings,” said the photographer. He had taken thousands of shots and it’s hard to select some out of his collection. His love for squirrels and photography got to other people as well, where so far he counts 17.8k followers who support his work.

We managed to make a collection with some of the most recent images he has shared. Scroll down below to check it out and enjoy!
