"What wild creature is more accessible to our eyes and ears, as close to us and everyone in the world, as universal as a bird?"
- Sir David Attenborough
My name is Peter Brannon and I photograph birds. There is something relaxing to the spirit in photographing them. Their variety can ensure that the love of the pursuit never ebbs, and the connection in the natural world that occurs can calm and center the mind.
My love of birds began with photography and then extended into the world of birding. Although they feel like different hobbies with different skillsets, the two activities can complement one another. I feel the extended periods of observation that comes with photography can heighten your appreciation from species to species as well as recognize and revel in the patterns of behavior that emerge - and these are moments I strive to capture.
I am from Dartmouth, Nova Scotia and I currently reside in Tampa, Florida
Currently I am shooting with the Nikon D850 as my primary camera and the D500 as my backup. I am almost always shooting with my 500mm Nikon ED-IF II.
