A few years back, I had some tough time in life and needed a break. What did I do? For the first time in my life, I didn't tell anybody, and decided to do this one crazy thing just for myself, not for anyone else or to meet any society expectations. I decided to venture into the wilderness whenever I had time, and to see wild animals roaming freely. Watching wildlife has been my childhood dream and it truly makes me happy. I had zero knowledge in photography when I started. I simply chose what I truly loved with no expectations, and thru this journey I have crossed path with a lot of our "wild" brothers and sisters, but some unexpected recognition happened...

As one who has viewed millions of photographs over my publishing career I was immediately drawn to Lee’s work. Now published around the world in books, magazines, and exhibitions, his images reflect a very deep respect for nature and the wildlife it nurtures. Lee’s photographs tell stories, rekindling our love for the natural world and reminding us to protect it.

7 Proven Steps to Getting Perfect Exposure in Your Wildlife Photos (in any situations)

Welcome to my homepage! Let me ask you a few questions:

  • Have you ever screwed up the metering/exposure (like I did) in the heat of the moment when an animal/bird suddenly showed up or kept moving into the shadows and out in the sun?
  • Are your photos constantly under-exposed and noisy?
  • Do you remember the pain when you blew out the highlight of your shots and it's not recoverable?
  • Over the years, I have mastered the step-by-step techniques so that I can get consistent perfectly exposed shots within the shortest preparation time. 
  • My exact steps to get the perfect exposure are written in this FREE PDF Cheat Sheet.
