About Me

Who am I?

My name is Samuel Amaris, a young New Zealand birdwatcher interested in nature and wildlife. I started bird photography in 2020 and haven't stopped since then. Based in Christchurch New Zealand you'll often find me taking photos in my favorite birdspot, The Ashley/Rakahuri Estuary.

Oh and of course, my favorite type of birds is the Kea :)


My Kit and Photography Tools

I use the Canon 1500d with 3 primary lenses. The Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Canon Contemporary, EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM and the EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 III. 

I use Adobe Lightroom Classic and Adobe Photoshop to improve my photos and allow more creative flow into them!

Please Note: Some of my older photos have been taken with the Canon PowerShot SX430 IS and some older photos have been edited with Gimp instead of Lightroom.
