Research – Xavier Ortega
Ortega is a Spanish wildlife and landscape photographer ,who has traveled to Nambia, Botswana, Kenya and Tanzania on search of his photographic subjects.
He chose to photograph in the black and white format instead of the traditional colour format that you find in wildlife photography.
Like Brandt he gets in close and excludes most of the outer environment choosing to focus on just the animal its self. His images have a high contrast between the black and the white , this makes the images very vivid but they also have a wide range of grey tones.
