PHOTOGRAPHER: Christian Sasse
My name is Christian Sasse. As a son of a diplomat I was born in London, moved to South Korea, then Germany, Israel, South Africa, Iran and Sri Lanka, finally Sweden. Then I went to the UK and now Vancouver. I am fascinated by different cultures.
My interests in photography and especially eagles, started a year ago when I imaged my first eagle in White Rock on June 24th 2011. From that day onwards I was hooked. In November. I went to the Fraser Valley Eagle Festival and was overwhelmed by the nature and density of eagles. During the next months I improved my technique in both photography and image processing. Since I live in White Rock, I am able to frequently contribute to the Hancock Forum as a ground observer with visits to the beach, where many eagles can be admired. My friendship with David Hancock and numerous enthusiasts of the Hancock forum has been most helpful and I was able to learn a lot about the behavior of eagles.
My curiosity in photography was also enhanced by my background in astronomy (I own several telescopes) and my PhD in optics.
I photograph everything from the millimeter scale (flying bees in high resolution) to eagles and galaxies, as well as quasars billions of light-years away. I use a Nikon D3s with mm f/2.8 Macro or 300mm f/2.8 or 600mm f/4 tele-photo lens. Sometimes I include a 1.4x tele-converter.
