Animals are one of my favorite subjects to photograph. Since I am not a millionaire and cannot travel the world to photograph wild animals, I like to visit zoological gardens, wait patiently for just the right shot and try to block out unnatural backgrounds so the animals have the appearances of being in the wild. Most of these pictures have been taken with my Cannon Elan IIe. Some of my favorite photographers today are Jim Zuckerman and Rachel Hayle. One of my goals is to be able to travel around the world photographing Newfoundland dogs and create a book from their photographs.
