About the Author
Australian artist Greg Oakley has had a lifelong fascination with birds and bird art, beginning with painting intricate illustrations at a young age when studying Art & Design at university. He began photographing birds 20 years ago, progressing from traditional film to digital in the early 2000s. In the past 6 years, he has worked on perfecting the difficult and exacting area of bird photography known as "setup", where perches and backgrounds are meticulously crafted and designed, and lighting strictly controlled.
