About Anthony Bucci

I grew up in Langley British Columbia, My passion for wildlife photography started a short 5 years ago. Prior to my photography days I spent all my free time fishing small streams, large rivers, sloughs, lakes and ocean for salmon, trout and steelhead. 20 years of fishing our beautiful province of British Columbia. One day the passion for fishing was slowly going away while a new passion was growing on me. I wanted to become a wildlife photographer. I found my calling to wildlife photography 2 years in when I decided to strictly photograph owls. The challenge was rewarding and frustrating at the same time. My love for Owls and other birds of prey started when I was in elementary school. Through research, time spent in the field and determination I love to show the world the secret lives of Owls that call our local forests home that most people don’t get to see. Photographing them in their natural environment, working hard to capture the best possible image is what I strive for each day. Wildlife photography has taught me to be cautious of our sensitive surroundings, Conservation and well being for all wildlife is the number one concern for me while I’m out in the field. Currently a volunteer for O.W.L Orphaned Wildlife Rehabilitation Center in Delta with injured birds of prey pick up for Abbotsford. Donating wildlife tours and prints to wildlife societies across Canada to generate funds for wildlife and care facilities to rehabilitate wildlife so they can be released at a later time.
