Biographie de l'auteur
Markus Varesvuo is a world-renowned bird photographer who has an uncanny knack for capturing action. While working in the business world for over 20 years, Markus ran a parallel life of bird watching and photography that began in his early teens. In 2005 he became a full-time professional bird photographer and has since written several books and received a number of awards for his photographs. His book Birds: Magic Moments was released by New Holland Publishers in late 2011 in six different languages. In 2010, he won the GDT European Wildlife Photographer of the Year award in the Birds category.
Markus is focused on European birds and works as eagerly with everyday species as he does with those that are more rare. He doesn t photograph birds in captivity or use a flash, as he prefers to photograph birds in their natural environment.
Jari Peltomaki is an internationally acclaimed bird photographer and tour operator based in Finland. His thirty-plus years of experience in the field is evident in his books, articles, and talks. Though bird photography is his main interest, his photo library includes other wildlife as well, photographed both in Finland and abroad.
Since 2007, Jari has chaired the Professional Nature Photographers of Finland Association. His photographs regularly receive awards in international competitions and have received several awards in the Veolia Environnement (BBC) Wildlife Photographer of the Year contest. He is the director of Finnature, Finland's leading wildlife tour operator.
Bence Mate is a young and exceptionally talented wildlife photographer. Growing up in a small rural village in the Hungarian plains, a birder's paradise, Bence studied nature, his biggest interest. Most of his spare time was spent fishing, hunting, or bird watching, and he built his first hide at the age of 14.
At a time when Hungary had yet to see its first professional wildlife photographer, Bence decided to become one. He has since won numerous awards for wildlife photography, including the Veolia Environnement (BBC) Wildlife Photographer of the Year award in 2010. In 2006, he started a nature photo tourism business, and his innovations in wildlife photograph-custom-built hides, tripods, and one-way glass-have caught the interest of many photographers. In 2010, Bence published his first book, The Invisible Photographer.
Eagerly tapping into all the possibilities offered by continuous technical evolution, Bence focuses on action photography of wild birds, mammals, amphibians, and reptiles. He lives in Pusztaszer on his farm, which is also his business headquarters. He has built photography centers in Costa Rica and Brazil.

Des photos magnifiques incluant de très belles ambiances.
Le seul bémol, j'aurai aimé une version en français.

The authors understood that some of the gear they mention will be dated a few years after they wrote this, but you can figure out pretty quickly what you need and who makes it and where to get it. And the locations they recommend will probably still be great places to see birds in a hundred years.
It's fascinating to read about their dedication, which includes making their own blinds, sleeping in a tiny tent outdoors in the winter, and even building their own homemade contraptions... one of the authors has made a remote control box to house his camera so it can rest in a marsh or snowy pine and capture pics of birds from distances that would otherwise be impossible. Imagine filling the frame with a bird using an ultra wide angle lens... how's that possible? This book will tell you.
The photos blew me away and my only regret is I got this book the same way I get all my others these days... electronically, rather than buying a physical copy. But some of the photos really need to be seen in print, filling a big page, not as tiny jpegs on my phone screen. If you're reading this before buying, consider buying the print edition, even if you usually prefer the kindle edition of most books.
I purchased the kindle version since it was one third the cost. I'm very disappointed with how the photos and their captions are not kept together. I would recommend spending the money for the print edition. Overall a fascinating book, but may contain far more information than the casual bird photographer can use. If you are looking for inspiration and fantastic artistic bird photos, this book will not disappoint.
That said, it is full of beautiful color pics and usable text describing how the picture was taken and with what equipment.
As a beginner in bird photography (one that would be expected to buy books on the subject) I find the equipment used and described in the book are way out of my price range. Many of the camera bodies used cost more than my Canon DSLR and the three lens I own combined. Many of the prime telephoto lens described also cost more than my entire kit.
So the techniques used with the high grade professional equipment do not exactly fit with the abilities of the equipment that I use.
However, the concepts are clear and even if my EOS rebel T3I does not have the capabilities of a Nikon D4 or Canon EOS-1D, I still have gotten much benefit from this book.
First would like to thanks Amazon even we're thousands mile away and received the goods in time and good condition.
The book is fantastic for bird photography. My country have only ones season (Summer) and approx. 80% of the birds shown in the book are more on 4 seasons country. That's not important as long the technique, recommendation, advice, tips and methods are mentioned/stated in the book are good enough for a "Middle class" photographer like me to upgrade to Professional Photographer.
Bird photographing is just one of my hobby and my aim is to shooting and achieved a good quality photos on Swallow birds flying and catching insects. Is not easy because the bird is too small and fly every fast.
This book to me is very useful and given 5 stars for this book.
