Taken on my final day of a 2 week trip to Finland photographing owls and bears. We had just rowed back across a lake from a night photographing bears from a hide when I turned and saw this scene. It was quite literally my final image as the cold had sapped the life out of the camera's batteries!
Robert Canis is a professional photographer specialising in the natural world, based in Kent, England.
A self-confessed non-globe-trotting photographer, he prefers to stay close to home since he feels that only by doing so can you really get under the skin of a place and reveal it in all it's forms.
Robert does, however, occasionally travel abroad but, just like when at home, will revisit locations many times over, in all seasons. These include Finnish Lapland, Poland and the Czech Republic.
He frequently lectures on photography and conservation issues throughout England and his work is marketed by three of Europe's leading image libraries, FLPA, Wildlife GmbH and Photoshot..
Robert has been awarded the following:
British Wildlife Photography Awards: 2x Winner - Botanical Britain
Wildlife Photographer of the Year: 2x Highly Commended
International Garden Photographer of the Year: 2x Highly Commended
