TruLife® Acrylic Features Wildlife Photographer: Lewis Marroquin

 

 

“Photography is my journey, nature is my inspiration and a reminder of

the lessons we can obtain from our precious animals and wilderness.”

Lewis Marroquin

 

 

Click below to watch our interview on nature and wildlife photographer, Lewis Marroquin, and to learn more about how he captured the perfect photograph in South Africa.

 

 

 

 

 

Journey to Photography

 

Lewis has been intrigued by the beauty of natural life since he was a child. In fact, as a teenager, he often traveled alone to Central America to study the wildlife in the jungle of Peten.

 

 

For many years, Lewis was a videographer, but an encounter with a grizzly bear on his trip to Yellowstone National Park was pivotal for his work. In our interview, he shares the moment he realized that photography was his true passion. To hear more details about this moment, watch the video above.

 

 

In addition to his commitment to photograph nature and wildlife; Lewis believes in protecting it by using his art. Lewis donates a percentage of the proceeds from his print sales goes to support wildlife conservation.

 

 

First Encounters

 

While on a photographic safari in Timbavati, adjacent to Kruger National Park in South Africa, Lewis encountered a rhinoceros family. This was the first time he had witnessed rhinos in the wild and was touched by the tenderness between the mother and baby.

 

 

The vision along with the background and light created that perfect photographic moment. For Lewis, the baby rhino in this photo represents hope, especially for a species whose numbers are dwindling.

 

 

 

 

Technical Aspects of this Photograph

 

To capture the photograph in the best possible way, Lewis typically carries multiple cameras and lenses ensuring that he is prepared for any situation that arises in his hunt for a wildlife photograph. For this shot, Lewis used a Nikon D750 DLSR camera because of its low light capabilities and handy articulating tilt screen. For the lens, he used the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 300mm F2.8G ED VR II. His settings included 1/1000th shutter speed, ISO 250, and the F-Stop at f/2.8.
