You might refer to Steve Ellwood, author of "In The Moment", as the invisible man. That’s because when he’s photographing his favorite avian subjects along South Carolina’s Hammock Coast, that’s exactly how he likes to be seen – or, rather, not seen.
“I do take great care in being a background rather than an intrusion of the environment I go into,” Ellwood said. “It plays into calming the birds, and it plays into just being respectful of them. The calmer they are, the more they’re going to act like themselves or how they act when I’m not there. That’s when you get those great moments. That’s when they’re not paying any attention to the human over there with a camera.”
The majority of Steve's time is spent photographing birds in Georgetown County, South Carolina, with the lion’s share of those shots from Huntington Beach State Park, the 2,500-acre park that Southern Living has proclaimed the “best birding site on the East Coast.”
