Photographer Christian Sasse merged his eye for light with his fascination for eagles; one of the results is this stunning image of an eagle and a spiderweb. Photo by Christian Sasse
Eagle photography in the raw Christian Sasse has seen his share of the world. He has lived in such far-flung destinations as Sri Lanka, South Korea, Sweden and South Africa — and those are just the countries under ‘S’. But since arriving in B.C. in 2011, Sasse has found his passion: eagle photography. The White Rock resident already had a fascination with light, getting his PhD in optics, but in the eagle he found the perfect subject for his focus. “The eagle fascinates me because of the many facets it has; and they’re all very powerful,” says Sasse. “I try to get close-ups, in flight, from above, below. As many looks as I can get.” As it turns out, Sasse has quite the talent for getting the right look. His blend of dedication and technique has garnered
over 20,000 likes for the photographer’s Facebook page, spawned a book: “White Rock Eagles: A Bald Eagle Family,” and seen his work featured both on the cover of Outdoor Photography Canada magazine and in an article within its pages. This passion brought the photographer to the North Island this September as the shutterbug spent three days in Port Hardy getting up-close and personal with the raptor. While here, Sasse began shooting video between stills, and last week he and partner Mark Horner released the inaugural episode of a planned series of short films under the banner of Eagle Nova Films. “Port Hardy turned out to be a paradise for a photographer,” said Sasse. “It seemed perfect for the launch of EagleNova as I
believe that it deserves more attention. My approach is simple and down-to-earth and hopefully I have given Port Hardy the respect it deserves.” The nine-and-ahalf-minute video is a blend of nature documentary, photography workshop and Port Hardy travelogue. Besides his beloved eagles, Sasse’s film includes views of a fisherman in the Quatse River estuary, Blue Heron, Canada Geese, black bear and views of town. “What I enjoy about Port Hardy is the real raw beauty, the nature and the way people are,” said Sasse in the first of the Outdoor Treasures offerings. “They’re very unpretentious and very natural.” The September visit was his second visit to the North Island, and he was struck by the memory of people who had met him on his first trip and who
approached him to chat and get caught up. “I was known by that time as ‘The Eagle Man’ with the big lens,” Sasse said with a laugh. The short film can be found online at www.youtube.com/ watch?v=7jyLxD7_ xBA&feature=youtu. be while Sasse’s photography can be found by searching Sasse Photo on Facebook or at www. sassephoto.com.
