Big 5s

Shogo Asao

Photographer

“I went to photograph African wildlife for the first time in 1975 and have been photographing wildlife all over the world ever since. I have seen a lot of fascinating animals from the Arctic to the Antarctica, from the tropics to the subtropical regions.

My favorite animal to photograph is the polar bear. In 1993, I went to photograph polar bears for the first time and after seeing wild polar bears, they became the animal I most like to spend time with.

Every year since 2006, I’ve been photographing the appearance of a parent and cute infant. I have been going to Canada for 13 years in a row to photograph the appearance of a newborn polar bear baby, born in the coldest month of the year. I also photograph polar bears in summer and autumn in the Arctic Circle.”
