Dirk Seis’ talent for photography is born from his great love of nature. An avid outdoorsman, he has a deep appreciation for the beauty of a stunning scene or a curious creature. Photography began as a hobby – a way of capturing those scenes and moments – and it quickly became a passion. Dirk will be the first to tell you, “If you want the shot you have to go out at the right time, and be patient.” Sometimes that’s a very early start to the day, but it’s worth it to experience and capture the breathtaking beauty that unfolds around you.
Some of Dirk’s most popular shots can be found at dirkseis.imagekind.com and he’s a regular contributor to his Instagram feed: instagram.com/dirkseis/
