“I currently live in Riverview, NB and have my whole life. I have been passionate about wildlife photography for quite a few
years. When I was a child I would frequently ask for disposable cameras to take photos of whatever critter I could find out in my backyard, or 9 times out of 10, my cat. I’d get these images developed and printed and keep them in an album to later look back on. I have always enjoyed taking photos, and it always seemed to be of animals. This theme has been consistent throughout my life, and led me to pursue photographing PEI’s wonderful foxes.”
“I remember flipping through the pages of National Geographic magazine with my grandfather as a child, the wildlife photography always fascinated me. I have always been a big animal lover which definitely plays a role. I do enjoy a challenge, and wildlife photography is just that. You don’t always find what you are looking for whereas wildlife is unpredictable, but when you do it is a thrill. Wildlife photography is a great learning experience.”
“I have had the opportunity to meet with biologists, conservationist, Master’s students, which helped me acquire knowledge regarding conservation, ecology, and animal behaviour. Wildlife photography is also an opportunity to showcase parts of the natural world to an audience that may not have an opportunity to see it. We live in a very beautiful diverse world, and I hope to inspire people through my images to care about the future of our planet’s natural wonders.”
“I have always heard people talk about how they have a ton of foxes over in PEI, one day I decided to and check that out for myself. I went over with a few photographers and we met with Hailey Lamb who was a student at UPEI involved with the UPEI Urban Fox Project. She gave us some information and led us in the direction of a few areas. That day I had the opportunity to photograph fox kits. After that I just became hooked on going to PEI, it is a beautiful province, not far from where I live, and you have about a 90% chance of seeing wildlife.” – Brittany Crossman, Wildlife Photographer
