Crucial Moments of the Wild Life

Photographers often look for the inspiration and objects for their pictures in the most unusual and unexpected places. Some of them try to portray the falling water drops; others do their best to photograph flame or fog. There are also many talented photographers, who direct their skills and efforts towards photographing wild nature and some particular moments of its life, such as hunting, resting, or eating… The latter aspect of animal life is depicted on the photographs, displayed in this showcase at Cruzine.

A giraffe, pasturing peacefully in the African savanna; a bird, feeding its nestlings from the beak; or a cheetah, chasing a young antelope – all of them simply follow their basic instincts, though each of such episodes is filled with crucial emotions for a human observer, especially if it is a predator hunting or eating its victim. These photographs undoubtedly represent the skills and talent of photographers, but their most important purpose is to show the complexity and variability of relationships in nature, where the principle of survival is the most important law and motivating force.

With 30 years of life experience behind my shoulders, today I find myself focused mainly around two core values: my family (I am a happy husband and a proud father) and IT in its broadest meaning, including but not limited to hardware and software techniques and innovations. My special interest and true passion is photography. Here I am ready to put my signature under each word, once said by Dorothea Lange: “The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.” Being a part of Cruzine team, I enjoy instant process of learning as well as sharing my own experience in photography and IT with the readers of this digital magazine.
