    Are there any wildlife photographers that do it in B&W film?

    Thanks,
    Brad

    the obvious answer is Nick Brandt who shoots in B&W, he gets a lot of flack here because he prints digitally but recently he has been doing very large platinums which are rather lovely

    you should check him out

    he also has a book out at the moment

    enjoy

    _B&W_ magazine did a feature on Carl Cook not long ago--

    I do a lot of B&W photography, and I photograph birds in color, but I've never quite been able to make B&W bird photography work for me. I probably just need to try harder.

    Martyn Colbeck is another one. His black & white elephant photographs are absolutely superb.

    Ravens represent well in b and w as do some species of Turkey Vultures; not to forget of course, the cormorants, crows and common pigeons in graceful flight.

    There's a norwegian photographer who has done some great B+W wildlife work, including some excellent Osprey photos. I *think* it was Pål Hermansen (www.palhermansen.com) but my magazines are buried for now and his website neither confirms nor denys my hunch.

    I am not positive, but if I had to guess, Clyve Butcher may have done some wildlife and he is primarily a LF B&W guy.
    Thank you.

    Look up Sebastiao Salgado's "Genesis Project". A web search finds many links to some of the images ( http://arts.guardian.co.uk/salgado/s...301861,00.html for example). B&W film (Pentax 645 I had read).

    From the past, look up Eliot Porter.
