A Photographer Followed Squirrels Daily With His Camera for 6 Years And Here Are some Of His Best Photos


Geert Weggen is an award winning Dutch or Swedish photographer, who specializes in photographing Red squirrels and other animals.

About Six years ago, Weggen found a fox on his front porch. I immediately rushed back inside to fetch some meat. The fox would come back daily to get more food, and I used that as an opportunity to do some wildlife photography.

By the end of a second week, the wild animal would come to the balcony where it interacted with various props I used for photography. Soon, a Russian bird visited me and continued doing so daily.

Suddenly, my balcony had become a wildlife photographers’ studio filled with nature props, cameras, mirrors, etc. The bird followed me, and I followed the bird with my camera, as it searched for hidden food in scenes that I had created.

Some photos of this encounter were awarded and published. Eventually, cute squirrels appeared, and they still come daily to my outside studio. Little did I know back then that the wildlife would become my living.

Since last year I have been organizing squirrel workshops at home. These workshops are organized to occur two times a year when the baby squirrels arrive. A maximum of 3 participants can join this 5-day workshop.
