Wildlife & Landscape Photography by Anette Mossbacher • Fine Art Photography

Anette Mossbacher

Having a deep interest in the natural world, I have dedicated my life’s work to be a photographer. Indeed, I am a wildlife, landscape, and nature photographer. Wildlife and landscapes inspire and excite me. As such, I have had great opportunities to travel to almost every continent on the planet. That gives me the burning passion for capturing unique moments in nature.

Challenges for me are a source of motivation. My background in sports has played a significant role in giving me the drive to do what I do. Undoubtedly, it has given me the ability to keep a positive mindset and stay focused while out in the field.

Getting that one unique photograph takes effort and time. To fully understand the challenges that await a wildlife photographer, you have to be out in nature. You have to know the freezing Arctic or the burning desert. My experiences have taught me the importance of dedication and commitment – also hard work, and most of all – patience. You must become one with nature and wait for the perfect moment. Be still, be quiet, and Mother Earth will reward your patience.

Feng Shui’s definition emphasizing the natural landscape. Today, the word Feng Shui is becoming so popular both in the east and the western world. How to find the hidden secrets Feng Shui in a landscape photograph?

What is Feng Shui?
Feng Shui is an ancient practice of how the Chinese people view the universe through the wise observation on how to achieve balanced energy and live harmoniously with its nature and the surrounding environment. “Feng” means wind, and “Shui” means water. That refers to the landscape photography of the earth. For example, shapes or sizes of the mountains and waterways are formed through the continuous synergy of these two powerful forces of nature.

Feng Shui is also actually an art, a common sense, and a cultivated skill on using enhancers such as real photography in the placement of the homes to attract good luck, prosperity, and harmony. In summary, natural landscape Feng Shui relates to fundamental concepts that advocate living harmoniously with the environment. Creating balance and blending in with the natural landscapes of the world offers prosperity, success, and harmony into your home and life.

Sandra Calderbank

For Sandra Calderbank—a photographer whose primary subject is birds—patience, stealth, and deep observation are as crucial to her work as her camera and lenses. These are the skills that have allowed her, time and again over the course of more than two decades, to successfully achieve her main goal of capturing the essence of birds’ lives. Spanning a near-encyclopedic variety of species from around the United States, her body of work adds depth and breadth to its viewers’ understanding and appreciation of these fascinating, beautiful creatures.

Mixing action shots—birds in flight, hunting, feeding, etc.—with portraits, the rich variety of her work within this specialized subject is evident; and hints at the distinct techniques necessary to realize the different types of pictures. Some of the action shots, like one of a bald eagle chasing an osprey over water—with the two birds beside each other, every wing, feather, and talon absolutely clear and seemingly in perfect alignment—are feats of serendipity; but also illustrate the veteran bird photographer’s well-honed instincts and technical prowess.

The portraits, on the other hand—genuinely intimate and revealing as they are—oftentimes stem from hours of quiet persistence, with Sandra ensconced in a blind, out in the wild; waiting, watching, and composing the perfect shot in her mind.

“Technically, it’s really challenging and takes a lot of practice to photograph birds,” she says. “Also, with the portraits especially, you have to study the different birds’ behavior and observe them closely, to learn, for example, what they eat and where they like to perch. That makes them less unpredictable, which naturally increases the chances of getting the shot I want.”

Sandra travels to wildlife refuges around the country, spending a lot of time walking, waiting, and watching; not unlike a hunter, stalking her prey and orchestrating the precise shot, with a successful capture of the image bringing cathartic pleasure. (In her case, though, the target always escapes unharmed.)

Sandra grew up in rural North Carolina and has always found solace in nature, which for her is synonymous with the miracle of life and the bounty of creation. In effect, her photography is an extension of the lifelong joy she has always found in solitary communion with “the great outdoors”; as well as a means to a greater understanding of and a deeper immersion in the wonders of nature (which, by dint of her many striking pictures, can be pretty contagious).

Cheetah hunting during the African night

If you have never visited the continent of Africa, you can still appreciate this extraordinary image of a cheetah on the hunt. It is nighttime, wherever the cheetah might be in Africa, and it isn’t difficult to imagine that it is also a very hot night. The cheetah doesn’t seem to care much about the weather. It simply wants to catch its prey. It has clearly found something. It is very definitively on the move. Given what we know about cheetahs, we know this particular cheetah is almost certainly going to catch that prey soon. Available as t-shirts, wall art, or interior home décor products. (Jan Keteleer)

Falcons hunting in the evening

This dynamic, rich piece features the striking visual of falcons in their distinctive, powerful surroundings. A moon that is simply massive, almost too close for comfort, hangs over the evening sky. The falcons are profoundly dedicated to their purpose. They will not stop hunting until they have found what they are looking for. If you happen to be one of the animals preferred by falcons, it isn’t hard to imagine the moon representing the heart. It is almost about to burst from fear and excitement. Available in several print forms, or as a home interior décor product. (Jan Keteleer)

Lion

Where is this lion going? No one can say for sure. There is an element of mystery to this fine art example. There is even a sense of adventure. At the same time, as we think about things like climate change, one can make the chilling argument that this lion is heading towards an unknown future. (Jan Keteleer)

On the Road Again: Anette Travels to Namibia, Africa in March 2019

Photograph of tourists climb a red sand dune in Sossusvlei in Namibia. Blue sky above this huge sand dune • Photograph by Anette Mossbacher

“Namibia is the hidden jewel of Africa. This is why I visit often, and I also lead photo adventure tours here as well. It is still pristine territory – an experience that no one will ever forget!” – Anette

Have you heard of Namibia?
This beautiful country lies in the southern one-third of the African continent. It is to the northwest of South Africa, where I currently call home, and to the west of Botswana.

I have traveled here many times due to its extensive natural resources and wildlife.

Here you will find amazing landscapes including the Namib Desert, Etosha National Park, and the Sossusvlei Sand Dunes to name a few.

The wildlife here is diverse and plentiful. For the photographer, it is significant to realize that Namibia holds a significant cheetah population. It is really something to experience a cheetah in full stride while on the hunt. There are also plenty of other game including rhino, giraffes, lions, zebras, and elephants to name a few.

Namibia is an ever-evolving story, which is why I return often to photograph.

After every trip, I plunge through my images, and inevitably, I believe that I can find better light, or a better angle, or a more dramatic moment.

In truth, I really just want to go back and take more pictures!

I will be spending eight days in the Etosha National Park, where I hope to photograph several new species.

I will also spend time in Hoanib River Bed. Here, among other animals, I will search for the allusive Desert Elephant and Desert Lion. They are extremely difficult to spot in the harsh landscape.

I love to drive up through the riverbed. To both sides, left and right, mountains jut dramatically up into the sky. Dust is everywhere. In all of my trips this spot, I have never witnessed any water in the riverbed.

If you dream of Africa, this is the place. Off road for sure, it is desolate and remote. Wildlife here is not used to human interaction, and will occasionally become aggressive towards vehicles.

It is a good idea to travel with company here!

Next, I will be off to Swakopmund
Swakopmund is a beautiful coastal city that is home to a number of tiny creatures that I wish to photograph: Namaqua Chameleon, Sidewinder snake, Shovel-snouted lizard, the Cartwheeling spider, and the Palmetto gecko.

Don’t be fooled by their diminutive size. These creatures are elusive. Despite previous attempts, I have never captured a single frame of any of them.

I see this as a challenge, and I think this may be my lucky trip! Will you keep your fingers crossed for me?
Wildlife is always a primary interest in my personal travels, as well as my photography workshops, and my privately led photo adventure tours.

However, I am always keen to capture unique landscape photography as well.
The areas of exquisite landscape that I will be visiting on this trip include; Epupa Water Falls and Sossusvlei / Namib Naukluft National Park.
While in Swakopmond, I plan to photograph from the air. I will rent a small plane and capture a bird’s eye view of the Skeleton Coast and the Namib Naukluft National Park.

Aerial photography is so much fun. If you’ve never tried it, you must join me on a tour, and I will teach you the ropes to these exciting images from above.

My last stop will be the Sossusvlei Landscape
My last stop on this trip will be the Sossusvlei landscape. This landscape is stunning! The area is surrounded by blood red sand dunes. Many of the black dead Acacia trees, which dot the Clay & Salt Pan (sometimes referred to as “Camel Thorn Trees”), are over 900 years old.

I sometimes refer to this area as “Dead Shot” – meaning it has been over-photographed.

However, this is the thing about Africa. Nothing stays the same. Every day can offer a new composition never before seen.

So… Off, I go!

See you next time – when I am “On the Road Again”.

Ciao Anette

Wildlife, Landscape, and Nature Photographer

Anette Mossbacher

My name is Anette Mossbacher, and I am a photographer with a deep-seated interest in the natural world.

It has been my life’s work to photograph wildlife species, and majestic landscapes, on virtually every continent of the Earth.
Some of my favorite memories include photographing the orangutan in the verdant rainforests, capturing images of lions and majestic elephants proudly strolling the African savannah, and getting up close and personal with polar bears in the Arctic Sea. I have traveled extensively in pursuit of these unique animal encounters and awe-inspiring natural scenery.

I am a full-time nature photographer, and I’m thrilled to share my photographic work with those that love nature as much as I do. This is especially true of those enthusiasts who have an interest in sharing my experiences – through a range of fine art photography, photo prints and stock photography images.
A vast array of my work is available to you on my website.

My experiences have taught me the importance of commitment, hard work, dedication, ambition, and most importantly – patience.
These skills and attributes are vastly important in my work as a wildlife, landscape and nature photographer. When one becomes a professional wildlife, landscape and nature photographer – harsh conditions and hostile environments are part of the job.

My background in sports plays an influential role in my ability to maintain a positive mindset and stay focused while out in the field. I like to think of challenges as a source of motivation rather than an obstacle.

I undertake a diverse range of projects including commissions and photographic assignments. My clients include individuals, corporations, small businesses, and publications from all over the world.
I offer my work as collectible fine art photography
My photographs are available for immediate download including; stock photos, landscape and wildlife photography prints, as well as art prints for the home and office. I also sell exclusive collectible prints, which are numbered and limited and available to view in my limited-edition collections.

Polar Bears and Ice Bergs Captured

Polar Bears, Ice Bergs & Arctic Nature on Photo Prints

When it comes to artwork, there are thousands of choices that homeowners can make their selection from. From the geometric photo prints that have been so popular over recent years to typography decals, every homeowner can ensure that their home is as unique as the individuals living in it.

However, there is one choice of artwork that is sure to delight, amaze, and inspire every taste and preference: photographs of nature and wildlife at their best, polar bears. For those looking to introduce a touch of natural beauty to their home decor, the incredible options available from Anette Mossbacher can make a truly stunning addition to any home.

Polar Bears a Rare Protected Species
Polar bears are one of the rarest sights in nature for two notable reasons. The first is one of accessibility; due to the chosen habitat of the polar bear, they are simply a sight that few people will have the chance to see. Polar bears tend to only live wild in the remote, polar regions, which few people ever have the chance to visit. Secondly, polar bears are a rare, protected species that are struggling for survival against issues such as hunting and climate change. Due to this combination of an extreme natural habitat and threats to the population, polar bears are primarily only accessible to the general public via photographic imagery.

Polar Bears Photographs as Artwork
What imagery it is, though! Anette Mossbacher has managed to capture truly incredible images of polar bears in their natural habitat, and these photographs can be printed and used as artwork. These wonderful images were primarily taken in Norway / Svalbard, also called Spitsbergen, where polar bears live naturally among the wild elements they call home. The austere beauty of the landscape juxtaposes perfectly with the soft, gentle appearance of the stars of the image, creating a beautiful overall picture that would complement any home.

Arctic Wildlife & Landscape Photo Prints
Speaking of the landscape, the majority of the Arctic wildlife photo prints available feature polar bears in various poses on a background of icebergs. These icebergs may look terrifying to us, but they are the natural home of these incredible creatures, and offer an extra dimension that any images of polar bears taken in zoo locations cannot hope to replicate. This is nature at its very best, unspoilt an wild, and Anette’s images have preserved these moments in time.

There are a range of photo prints to discover, from close up images that primarily focus on the bear itself to more distant images that take in the entire landscape. Photo prints are also available that include the moon in the image; helping to bring together another natural element in an image that will draw gasps of admiration from anyone who sees it. The keen eye of an experienced photographer such as Mossbacher is able to pick out the moments that should be preserved in time, allowing for a wonderful range that is only possible thanks to the expertise of the person behind the lens.

These photo prints can be ordered online for maximum convenience, and are sure to make a stunning addition to any room of your home or office.
