Photographer Captures Black and White Photos of Wild Animals

Ejaz Khan specializes in conservation, wildlife, and fine art photography. On his Instagram profile, where he has attracted more than 20 thousand followers, Khan shares mostly black and white photographs of all sorts of animals. Still, according to the artist, his favorite models have to be horses.

“Horses are fabulous subjects for photography and art: One can capture their social interactions, movements, play, and winding down moments,” Khan shared on Bored Panda. “Black and white horse pictures of stallions, Mustangs and wild horses never cease to inspire. While I love capturing images of horses running through water, snow, and marsh, my team and I are exploring ways of taking photos from angles not seen before.”

Scroll down to take a look at some of his photos.

AUTOPILOT. Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer. Early evening. I have been to this location for the past 5 to 6 years. I know what the weather conditions will be like, the smell in the air, the mosquitoes, the muck water, how the horses will run through the water, etc. Here for the most part, I functioned on autopilot. I don't think about the environment or how to take the photographs, things just happen and I come back with decent looking images. I knew I was not growing any more at this location, familiarity had made me comfortable but I still just continued without making an effort to change. Before I left for this trip, a friend of mine and I were having dinner at a restaurant in NYC. She asked, “what are you going to do different this time?” It was as though someone stabbed me with a dagger. She was right, I was coming back with similar looking photographs and nothing different. I consciously made a big effort to change things around and not function on autopilot to achieve this photograph. Since then, I do my best to change my daily routines. I don’t like all the results but I love having variety in my life now. @horses @horses_.lovers @horsesrealm @horsesofweek @horsesplanet @fam.horses @horsesofthedayy #horsephotographer #fineartphotographer #equestrianlove #horseshow #chevaux #cavalli #caballos #horsephotography #beautifulanimals #onewithwildlife #fineartphotography #animalsarefriends #beautifulhorses #contemporaryphotography #outdoorlife #amazingexperience #animaloftheday #artcollection #artmuse #lifepassion #ejazkhanearth

TECHNOLOGY Mid Afternoon – South India. We stopped for a bit in the middle of a forest. Everyone pulled out their phones, frowned because we soon realized there was no Internet. We were forced to be in the moment; some stretched their legs some sat on the log next to the truck staring at nothing. I walked towards this Langur and decided to spend some time observing him. He was very relaxed while the others were busy doing a lot but nothing at the same time. It struck me. I do the same with my phone, a lot but really nothing. I always complain of having no time for my self, but I still give so much time to my phone. In New York, I get up; the first thing I do is answer emails and text messages. Even though none of them will help in creating photographs, improve climate change or the outcome of my day, but I still answer them regardless. I repeat this all day, every day and any free moment I get, even though my mind feels cluttered. When I travel to remote locations without internet, My mind is not cluttered, I am in the moment and not distracted by the constant emails and text messages allowing me to stay more focused on the thing I want to achieve. Do we know how to use technology to our advantage or are we becoming slaves to technology?

ELECTRIC ENCOUNTERS South India Afternoon. After 6 days which seemed like a never-ending journey in search of my elusive sighting, I finally found fortune favor me. I had a Godsend opportunity to face the tigress, I watched her from a distance and then up close. She glared at me and then hissed, I felt a definite connection. That hiss was mesmerizing to me and almost hypnotic. The exchange of energy to something that great cannot be described in words, but only experienced in a real-life situation. To share the energy of the tigress is to allow the flow of electricity within your being. To me, it was more about a connection, and I felt so connected to her during those few minutes. This was a moment in my life that will be unforgettable, it was not a moment of fear or reckoning, but like an unseen eternal power from above. It was a connection with an energy force of this majestic beast, which was a greater force than me, more graceful and more beautiful than anything I have experienced. To feel the spiritual energy of the Tigress is what I would wish & hope for everyone. So that the world may learn that we need to take greater care of these greatly endangered species. We are thankful for the support and partnership from Marmot and Darn tough Vermont that make out expeditions possible.
