After spending countless weeks with a unique variety of European birds as his only company, the time has finally come for Markus Varesvuo to share his breathtaking project with the world.
Capturing Birds in Nature
Photographer: Markus Varesvuo
Full-time occupation: Wildlife photographer
Aim of project: To create a large-format, high-quality coffee table book on birds
Location: I mostly got my shots in Europe, but I also travelled overseas
Duration: The photography itself spanned three or four years, and the design of the book then took a further year
Time spent: Probably too much time all in all if I were to be totally honest!
Images taken: The photos I shot for this project go into the hundreds of thousands
