Leave Only Footprints - The Photography of André Joanisse.
Nature, Wildlife, Travel and Photography - it is a dream come true when you can combine what you love to do with what is actually work.
My roots are from Eastern Canada where I first developed an interest in photography and the outdoors. It seems a long way that the journey has brought me from The Great White North to this Land of Plenty.
The beauty and bounty of life we experience in nature inspires me and makes me realise how special it is to be part of it all. We get given rare opportunities to glimpse into the heart of a wild animal as it graciously accepts us as part of their environment. It is truly a special moment when you make that connection with another living creature.
The more time I spend in remote places with stillness and solitude, capturing the many hues and the play of light on the landscape, the more awe inspiring the experience has become.
With my work I try and bring the viewer into the moment that I have experienced and to capture not just a record of the image but also reflect the mood and the ambience of the setting.
A lot of my work is available for sale as a print or as a licensed image. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me.
There are plenty of great photographers out there. A few that I admire are Galen Rowell, Ansel Adams, Bruce Dale, Frans Lanting, Trent Parke, Christian Fletcher, Darren Jew, just to name a few.
Thank you to Andrew THOMASSON of Focus 10 Photography for taking the photo of me at St Mary Peak in the Flinders Ranges, South Australia.
André is an Accredited Professional Photographer of the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP).
