PHOTOGRAPHER:  Christian Sasse

Bio: 

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.

First Chick at White Rock

April 20, 2012, 7:46 am - First feeding for the first eaglet at the White Rock nest!  The chick hatched at 2:58 pm on April 19, and spent the rest of the day resting after the hard work of breaking out of its shell.  By morning, I think the little one was getting hungry!

Watching the White Rock #1 Eagle Nest

One of the features of being a member of Hancock Wildlife Foundation - and logging into the web site each time you come back - is that you get to access the full-resolution still images we grab from our High-Res cameras at the White Rock nest.

Until recently, while the Winter was running its course and the birds were only here sometimes, we've been grabbing only medium resolution (1280x720) images but starting today, we're pulling the full 1920x1080 pixel images into the archives and as usual, making a time-lapse video each night for you to look at the next day.

Here are a couple of the medium resolution images from February 25 - a wonderfully sunny day on the Pacific West Coast.

When you are logged in, the home page "Quick Links" menu on the left border will have an extra entry for these "High-Res Archives" where you can choose which camera and then see each of the daily sets of about 220 images for the cameras at the site. Currently we are archiving from White Rock and Port Moody (both cameras again - the wide angle came back on its own it seems) as well as some from the Lafarge camera pulled manually (not quite as high resolution, but well worth the visit)
