Imagine knowing what you want to do in life at the early age of 12. Josiah Launstein is a young, accomplished wildlife photographer who won’t stop surprising us with his amazing skills.
He might be only 14, but he’s been taking stunning shots of animals for several years now. What’s even more interesting, Josiah won the Young International Bird Photographer of the Year Award for three consecutive years.
“I also really like the challenge of wildlife photography. Besides having to learn the technical side and how to quickly react to changing conditions, you never know if you’re going to spot an animal or if it will present an opportunity to photograph it at all! My family and I don’t bait, lure or call animals in or do anything to get an animal’s attention. If it happens, it happens, and if not, we still got to have a cool experience in nature and know we didn’t do anything to stress the animals we saw.”- Josiah Launstein told Modern Met.
