About Field and Farm Fine Art Photography - Bonnie Block
Bonnie Block is a self taught wildlife photographer residing in the Pacific Northwest near Seattle, Wa.
After retiring in 2009 Bonnie was finally able to have the time to combine her love of photography with her lifelong passion for animals and the natural world.
Photographing the birds of the Pacific Northwest as well as birds throught the world has become a major focus in her photography work.
Bonnie prefers to use available light and natural settings for her compositions while observing, but not disturbing her subjects. Additionally, she knows that knowledge of habitat and behavior, combined with patience, are the key to the rewards of "getting" the shot.
Bonnie has had several recent works honored by the North American Nature Photography Association (NANPA), the Seattle Audubon Society, and the Photographic Society of America.
In 2016 She was awarded the Audubon Grand Prize for Photography. This prestigeous contest featured over 7000 entries that year. The image has been featured around the world and hung in the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History in association with the Nature's Best Photography show.
She is proud to feature prints and notecards available for sale at the Gallery at Liberty Bay in Poulsbo, Wa.
