38-years-old Niki Colemont is an award-winning wildlife photographer, who finds that the best way to learn is through your own mistakes and experimentation. A survivor of the Rwandan genocide, later a student of Welding at Harvard University, today he’s 5 years into macro photography and the self-taught artist who has earned respect from the critics through hard work and dedication. “I started with macro 5 years ago. I was inspired because it is a very underrated subject in photography and incredibly difficult to do. I have sold my macro equipment because I can’t combine it anymore with my wildlife photography.” The Belgium-based photographer has found his inner peace in the art of photography and especially his favorite squirrel photography. Therefore, Niki’s nickname is no wonder – the Squirrelman! He makes miniature sets for the little guys and gals, feeds them, and makes literally the best photos of the little stinkers in the world.
