Barbara Scoles Photography | About

I have been taking photos all of my adult life. I started with travel photography but always loved wildlife.
Once I could finally afford my first good telephoto lens, it was an awakening of a long-awaited passion for wildlife photography.
My goal is to capture the unique personality of each animal I come across. I also take portraits of them but it's their behaviors, sometimes comical, sometimes poignant, that's important to me.

Some days, my husband Harry and I will be out in nature all day and not see much wildlife, but the scenery and solitude is so peaceful. Then, all of a sudden, a coyote will burst out of a tangle of brush by the side of the road and scatter birds everywhere. It's the surprises that make it so special to be out there!
