Wildlife photographer captures fox family rollicking in Lincoln

Roger Stevens Jr. has had to go fifty miles into the forests to take wildlife snaps, but he had not gone to the Perry Street looking for subjects. That altered for the fifty-six year old pro wildlife photographer this week because of Lincoln resident Kim Burleigh, who on 19th April noticed 5 young foxes with its mother and father under a shed in Lincoln’s Perryville section.
Roger Stevens Jr. told that she and her daughter have been watching them for awhile. She saw them out playing, which is quite rare. Like any babies, they only play for a minute. He hit them two times in two days and he was really lucky. The wind really throws them off, but a real sunny, warm day will draw them out.
Kim Burleigh told that she has just been stalking the little buggers since she noticed them out of her best friend’s back window. They are very precious. She was paying visit to one of her buddies Chelsea McCafferty on 19th April 19. Standing with her, she noticed the family living under a neighbor’s shed. Kim told that she asked if she was aware that there was a huge fox behind her home and then they noticed all the kids hopping around and playing.
Stevens, a Lincoln resident, has staked out the shed with a huge lens for many days earlier this week and uploaded posted a whole lot of snaps to his Facebook page. He stated that the foxes’ mom keeps a pretty sharp eye on her offspring.

Controversy over wedding photograph

The leading organization representing professional photographers of Australia has apologized to one of their members after they accused him on Facebook of using professional actors to set up a marriage photograph to enter in a contest. In fact, the newly married couple who featured in the snap outside the Sydney’s Luna Park were actually actors.

People probably have seen the couple – bride Stephanie Delaney and groom Anthony Harkin – in different stage productions. But the couple had genuinely got married and were hamming it up for a snap on their marriage day when Jonas Peterson, a photographer, snapped them in the year 2010.

Therein lies yet another problem that has scarred Australian Institute of Professional Photography Queensland awards this year, handed out at a ceremony on Monday night in Brisbane. The snap in question was clicked in 2010, around 6 months outside the 2 year cut off date mentoned in the competition’s rules.

Jonas, a Brisbane based photographer who covers marriages both in Australia as well as overseas, stated that he had not read the contest’s rules in their entirety and that he had made a mistake by offering an old snap that was  actually not eligible for the awards. Jonas was stripped of the Queensland’s Wedding Photographer of the Year title on Tuesday, one day after the event.

But he told that he was not ready for the accusations that were posted on Australian Institute of Professional Photography’s Facebook page by national president Kylie Lyons which suggested that he might have cheated.

Jacquemin speaks about his photography career

Soft rays of sun surge via the evergreen boughs, and just a look is enough to thrill photographer Tom Jacquemin and for him every picture is a memory, it is a time capsule of history, place and emotion. Sixty-nine year old Tom has been tinkering with different cameras for the past fifty five years. His love with film begun in the year 1957 at the Leland Jr. High in Bethesda when Jacquemin took a darkroom photography class. Film as well as other equipments were very expensive, but Tom’s father gave him a new camera anyway, helping his son’s new love. His hobby evolved further when he turned into a photographer for hisnewspaper and yearbook of high school.

But tom did not selected photography as his career. Instead, tom took an elementary education degree as well as taught in southern Oregon for 9 long years. Eventually, he turned to counseling that he practiced for twenty one years in Sherwood elementary as well as middle schools.

That time photography took a backseat, but Tom never let go of his camera. When tom retired in the late 1990s, he started selling his photography work at the farmers markets. Tom told that when someone would come look at his snaps photos, he would ask them if they really wanted to listen to the story why he took it. This allowed him to share some of his story and for them to tell him part of theirs, if they wanted.
