Photographer Steve Benjamin

Canine Culture

Hi everyone, welcome to Friday, CEO Olivia here. South African photographer Steve Benjamin generally uses his background in Zoology to capture the underwater lives of sharks, whales & dolphins. But due to quarantine restrictions because of the ongoing threat of COVID-19, the Cape Town-based photographer has shifted his focus to the feathered animals visiting his backyard.

The result is a stunning series of portraits captured using the same techniques as underwater photography. Benjamin established a backyard miniature studio for his feathered visitors by positioning a feeder in a small sunny area with nearby shade, plenty of blooming flowers, & twig perches.

You can see the full series on Benjamin’s website, in addition he also shares lots of of wildlife shots on Instagram.

Have a pawsome weekend.

CEO Olivia
