Being commercial/industrial photographers, we have gotten to experience a lot over the years in terms of learning about different industries, programs and organizations. That’s one of our favourite things about our job is that we are constantly learning new things and getting to meet the awesome people that make up our community.
BUT one thing I can say that we have never come across before is Birding…until NOW that is!
We are so stoked to be working with Lotteries Yukon and Mosaic Communications on Lotteries’ new “What’s Your Recreation” campaign, which was just launched! Throughout the course of the year, we get to work with Yukoners around the Territory and get portraits of them out doing a variety of recreational activities
And you know what guys? Thanks to Tedd here, our first model of the series, it turns out we learned Birding is CRAZY COOL.
Like did you know Woodpeckers tongues are so long, they actually wrap around their entire skull to help protect their brains from concussions!?
LOOK AT THIS DIAGRAM IT’S INSANE:
And that’s just the start of it…Immature Eagles have longer wings than adults because they act like “training wheels” and the Arctic Tern (which we do get here in the Yukon) has the longest migration of any animal in the world!
BIRDS! Fascinating creatures…
All this to say, my world view on birds has been changed. I now get excited when I hear them. I’ve caught the birding bug….
Huge thanks to the awesome team behind this exciting campaign! It’s always so awesome to see our images “out in the wild” with design and we are so excited to see what else we get to capture along the way!
