B.C. Photographer Of The Month: Cas Sowa (PHOTOS)

Cas Sowa

December's HuffPost B.C. Photographer of the Month has a knack for capturing the intimate moments of wild animals. Whether it's baby foxes nursing with their mother, an owl catching a moment of peace, or a baby goat climbing over an adult, Cas Sowa can capture it — and well.

Sowa grew up in Northern B.C., around Telkwa, and has been practicing photography since the early '70s.

"Raised dirt poor, the only inspiration was with the natural wildlife and nature," Sowa told The Huffington Post B.C. in an email. He said he took "great interest seeing how all life and nature is an extension of yourself."

He is always trying to find nature's deeper meanings and express those through his work.

"Shooting images and creating what a person feels is something that will always be with me," Sowa said. "It’s a challenge that keeps a person inspired."
