A.Bucci Photography

   

I'm a wildlife photographer that grew up in Vancouver British Columbia, Canada
 
My passion for wildlife photography started about 5 years ago. I started to focus strictly on Birds of Prey and more so on Owl Photography.
 
I have always had a liking for Owls. The way they look, they fly, their hidden secretive characteristics makes them challenging to photograph.
 
My hard work and success started out with a professional wildlife photography contract in the United Kingdom in 2015.
Magazine cover shots. Primary photographer for Chicago based Owl Eye magazine. Honorable mentions in various contests as well as Black Press finalist for British Columbia's amateur photographer of the year. 
 
My idea idea of wildlife photography is packing my gear into forests where no people have been before. Hiking a quiet forest through various terrain with open ears waiting for a faint call of an Owl. Being alone in a forest looking for owls is the most rewarding feeling. You get the sense of leaving the hectic everyday life behind you while photographing these amazing birds. They truly are mesmerizing with their character like behavior. Making you forget about everything else going on around you. 
 
I have donated numerous prints and other products to various
wildlife societies across Canada. Silent auctions and other fundraisers to raise funds for wildlife conservation and well being.
 
I'm currently on the raptor pick up list for O.W.L Orphaned Wildlife Rehabilitation Center in Delta BC, Canada.
 
I feel it's important to give back to the Wildlife he photographs. Conservation efforts and helping where I can is a task I take seriously. Wildlife Photography to me is more than just taking pictures. Thinking about conservation is always on my mind and the well being for all wildlife.
