Beautifully Black and White – Animal Photography by Stephanie McDowell

Stephanie McDowell lives in Connecticut and loves photographing New England’s wilderness and wildlife. But, she also finds inspiration and photography subjects from visiting the Connecticut Audubon Society, where she’s able to get incredible portraits of wild birds that have been injured. Using black and/or white backgrounds, she does a great job of bringing out the beauty and personality of each bird and animal she photographs.

To see more of Stephanie’s photography, visit her Facebook page, Etsy shop, or Flickr photostream.

    Great set of photos. the use of BW is very refreshing in a field that’s so often over-the-top colour. Really slows you down and makes you take in the detail. Well done.

    I bought your owl print LadyBird and I love it!

    I’m interested in your eagle and your other owl (hoo) prints.
    How do I go about purchasing one of each? Are they on Esty
    as well? If so, let me know and I’ll go there!!!

    Thanks so much
