to do this type of photography include many elements. The most
important being - the photographer's ability to blend in with
the environment and become transparent to the people being photographed.

About the Author: Peter
started taking photographs for academic slide shows in
the early 70s and ended up in Soho Photo Gallery by the
late 70s. Cooperative Galleries and Art Shows were his
forums for landscapes with man, landscapes, and world
cultures images. By the 90s so much of his work was world
cultures in developing lands that he called his business
"Ends of The Earth Photography". In 1999, after
contracting to buy his retirement house in Sanibel Island,
Florida, a paradise for bird photographers, he transformed
himself into a bird photography with a little help from
other professional bird photographers.
