6 of the Most Creative Animal Photographers

By fotosiamo on October 30th 2012

My Life Scoop recently came up with a fun list of the 6 Most Creative Animal Photographers. It definitely takes quite a special set of skills to shoot animals, as they can be unpredictable, and of course comes in all sorts of sizes, shapes, and textures.

Each of the animal photographers on the list have their own unique style, and their choice of animals range from man’s best friends to wild animals from Africa. What they all have in common, however, is their creative ability to capture the best of the animal world.

Here is a quick rundown of the list. I will highlight the two photographers out of the group that are my favorites, and you can read the article on My Life Scoop for more details on the rest of the photographers.

Ron Schmidt

Ron Schmidt
Although all of these animal photographers are terrific on their own, my favorite has to be Ron Schmidt. Ron’s photos has a light-hearted, comical touch to all of his photos that irresistibly put a smile on your face. Not only are his photos full of genuine affection, but each of the photo caption (and I’m usually not big on captions) adds wit and charm to the photo. Here is another example of his work:

Nick Brandt

Nick Brandt
Now going on the opposite end of the genre spectrum is Nick Brandt, whose stunning black and white elephant photo reminds me of Richard Avedon’s stunning Dovima and the Elephants in terms of texture and quality.

It’s not everyday that you see a series of African wildlife photos in black and white. The treatment of his photos really gives theme a timeless feeling. Nick was formerly a music video director. It was during his time directing Michael Jackson’s Earth Song video in Tanzania that he discovered his passion for wildlife photography.
