But it’s not just about the close-ups for Punkka. He’s into photographing animals in a way that highlights their surroundings. Instead of aimlessly shooting, he carefully considers the landscape behind the animal and searches for a composition that best represents the overall environment. The angle from which he takes the photo can make a huge difference. Capturing wildlife at eye level, for example, gives the animal the respect it deserves, but Punkka also explores other angles to showcase the vastness of the landscape.
