Award-winning wildlife photographer Steven Blandin's vivid photographs bring viewers face-to-face with exotic and unusual animals, capturing each with an intimacy that's almost impossible to experience in nature. The scenes can be mysterious, breathtaking or humorous; but they all captivate the viewer with the beauty and unexpected personality of their subjects.
Blandin recently won first place in the Wild Animals category and was listed as one of the Top Ten Florida Professional Photographers in the 2013 Florida Professional Photographers competition, and it’s no wonder. Although his photographs are of animals and places that many Americans will never see, they bring the wonder of discovery and a sense of adventure into galleries and homes. With a high attention to detail and the gift of capturing unforgettable moments, Blandin’s work makes viewers feel like participants on his photographic safaris. Aside from creating arresting images, Blandin has a higher goal for his work: he hopes his photographs will inspire people to explore nature and preserve the world’s unsettled places.
