Surrounded by forests, ponds and heathland, National Geographic Magazine published wildlife photographer Edwin Kats finds inspiration within the radius of his Netherlands home. It doesn’t come easy though – sometimes it takes months or even years to take a truly good photo.
In an interview published last December, Kats said that ‘A thing I learned along the way is that you can get great results by sticking to just one subject for a long time. Try to get to know your subject and follow it through the seasons. Try to get them in the snow, against autumn colors and with a nice back-light on a sunny summer morning. Another advantage is that the animals, even the very shy ones, will get to know and trust you. The best possible feeling I can get is to be accepted and trusted by a wild animal’.
