The APN GUIDE: Reptile and amphibian photography
Reptiles and amphibians (or “herps”, for short) are a diverse and fascinating group of animals that provide many wonderful opportunities for photographers. Almost anywhere you go in the world, you have a chance of encountering some of these animals in the wild!
Taking photos of reptiles and amphibians has much in common with other forms of nature photography, with a few unique challenges of its own – the greatest of which is simply finding and approaching the animals in the first place. In this article I'm not going to talk about gear, settings, lighting or any of that technical stuff; I'm just going to talk about how to find the critters so you can take t

Freezing For Love
Wild frog. Ischgl, Austria, near Pardatchersee.

The story behind this picture (and several others like this in my gallery) : One of the skiing trails in the Paznauntal area, which I like a lot (for those of you who know Ischgl, the 'number 3', also known as the 'Waldabfart'), lies near a very popular breeding pond for frogs. And it so happens that their breeding season tends to coincide with the very first hints of spring, and in the last years this tends to coincide with the period when I'm around as spring seems to arrive earlier. Now, in order to get to their pond, the frogs have to cross this skiing trail, which is almost completely flat at that point of the descend. Because of the overall 'flatness', there is a surface lift next to it, which takes skiers across. But because the amount of frogs gets to such crazy numbers sometimes, they now have an actual traffic sign near the lift warning you for the frogs and you can see all the skiers go out of their way trying to avoid the frogs like it's some kind of super silly video game. It's quite funny to watch actually Giggle Since it's quite a hassle to not take the lift here, especially cause it will make you all sweaty (which then freezes again) because of the effort of crossing the often very soggy snow, you know, when it gets all slushie-like and heavy, I hadn't really taken any pictures of the event for quite a while, but this is my second year in a row that I've tried to make the most of it.


Animal tribal tattoos
For the mentioned price you can give me all the details you want (tattoo size, animal you'd like to be in the design, the pose the animal should have, where on your body you want the tattoo so I can make it follow the natural shape of the body etc.). I'll then make a first design, either in pencil or as a digital sketch and send it to you for comments. Afterwards, I'll rework the design to suit your comments, and show it again for approval. The second time around I'll only change detail work. Finally I'll ink the design after having done the final tweaks to it and send you a high quality scan in a format of your choosing. I also promise I will not allow any other person to use the design, so you have a guaranteed unique design, and I will watermark the design when showing it on DA or another website (see for example the wolf tattoo on the far right of the widget).

The listed price is for average sized tattoos like the ones in the examples and includes several feedback stages to ensure the design is 100% to your liking. If you are looking for very small or very large designs, please contact me first.

Nikki van de Pol
I was born in 1988 in Belgium and also still live there. I speak Dutch, English, French and a bit of German and thanks to my studies I am also proficient in Latin and have some knowledge of Ancient Greek. I love metal music, and you can frequently find me at concerts and festivals, but that doesn't mean I don't listen to other genres. Art-wise, I mainly focus on photography, with a preference for animal/macro/nature photography although I diligently serve as photographer for my husband's band Everglow as well. Recently, I've been venturing into photomanipulation too and it's my secret wish to be able to design a CD booklet one day. I also regularly make tribal tattoo designs of animals in my own unique style. Other drawings, both digital and traditional are uploaded more sporadically, since my job rarely allows me enough time. I occasionally dabble in writing as well. The art aside, my hobbies are skiing, tennis, dancing, hiking, reading, watching loads of movies and playing with my dog Luca. I currently work at KU Leuven as an FWO-fellow (PhD) in English diachronic linguistics.
