To succeed as a photographer have clarity about who you are and what you want to say - and what you stand for. Don't chase styles or influencers because you'll probably be disappointed and waste time following something that won't make you happy even if you win.

No matter where I go, my photographs of eagles attract attention. I get many questions about how to do this work and while I have decades of experience that cannot be condensed into a blog post, I can give you some idea of how to photograph eagles, just in case you’re motivated to try it.

If you have a moving, shocking, thought-provoking, arresting, important, serious photograph that causes people to react, think, feel, etc., it doesn’t matter whether you are old or young, female or male, what race you are, what religion you are, what your history is or what your future holds, what country you live in, how much money you have, how pretty you are, how strong you are, how powerful you are, how important you are, how cool you are – all that matters – and I do mean ALL that matters – is the picture.
