Garrett Sheets is an avid nature photographer from St. Louis, Missouri. At 19 years old he has been fortunate enough to travel all over the world with various organizations, bringing his camera to photograph exotic wildlife and landscapes. He hopes his images inspire others and encourage a deeper appreciation for the natural world.
His previous experience as a top bird watcher in the state of Missouri helped him gain proficiency in interacting with subjects in the field, and respect for the subjects he photographs. Birds continue to be his primary joy, however, he now appreciates them through the viewfinder of his camera and the images he creates.
Garrett began exploring the outdoors from a young age and loves sharing his experiences and stories with others. He enjoys getting down in the mud, climbing trees, and doing whatever he can to get the shot, however, Garrett always puts the subject's safety first.

Minimalism in Wildlife Photography
The minimalistic effect is a popular form of photography due to its clean presentation and pleasing appearance. It can involve isolating the subject to create more emphasis, including complementary colors, or using unique backgrounds that make the image pop. As a wildlife photographer, it can often be difficult to create these scenarios because animals are constantly moving for the most part, and the setting is always changing. Learning how to plan ahead and recognize which situations will produce the most simplistic results will help you create cleaner images that reflect the minimalistic style of photography. Join Garrett Sheets to discuss the art of minimalism in wildlife photography, and learn how to create images that invoke a simplistic feeling.
