Nicky Colemont, one of the winners, told how he became a wildlife photographer: “In the summer of 2016, I was visiting my grandparents. While walking in the garden, I heard the sudden sound of branches cracking and leaves rustling. To my amazement, a squirrel jumped out and ran almost across to my feet! My heart began to pound from such a close encounter with nature. This fleeting moment made me curious, I wanted to see more of these creatures. In the hope of luring them, I set up a feeder and filled it with walnuts. After a while (after 3 months), I was lucky "Not just one, but a whole family of four squirrels started coming for treats. It was the perfect start to something magical."

Colemont was named one of One Eyeland's top wildlife photographers and ranked 2nd in Belgium.

“Winning is a great way to boost my self-esteem and motivates me to enter new competitions, as this is the best way to gain recognition in the world of photography!”

Nicky explained: "I'm a big believer in thinking outside the box and pushing the boundaries of traditional photography. I love experimenting with different techniques and angles to capture the essence of each subject. What really sets my work apart is the time I dedicate to studying my subjects. Immersing myself in "their world, I can better understand their behavior, habits. This patient approach allows me to predict the perfect moment and take that very photo that really tells the story."

15. Tin Sang Chan, Scarborough, Canada



Colemont was asked what advice he would give to aspiring wildlife photographers, especially those interested in photographing squirrels. He replied, "Spend time with squirrels. You need to learn their habits to get great pictures. Watching them in their natural habitat will help you understand their movements, behavior and habits. This knowledge will allow you to predict their next move and take the perfect photo." .
