Bird Love


Fine art photographer Leila Jeffreys captures the beauty and diversity of some of our most colourful and elegant feathered friends. From the birds of her native Australia to North America, Jeffreys seems to see into the very souls of these model-like creatures with her stunning and evocative portraits.

Jeffreys works with animal rescue and conservation groups to find subjects to photograph. Her love and compassion for her subjects is evident throughout, and she captures their personalities in her delightful portraits: Commander Skyring the Gang-Gang Cockatoo, Dexter the White-Bellied Sea Eagle, Mrs. Plume the Budgerigar and friends, are as delightfully whimsical as they are beautiful.

About the Author(s)
Leila Jeffreys

Leila Jeffreys was raised in Perth, Australia, however thanks to her very adventurous parents, spent much of her childhood travelling. This included time living in Nasrapur, India, a small village southeast of Mumbai and living with her family on a house boat in Kashmir, India. Jeffreys grew up surrounded by wildlife and forest, sparking her interest in the natural world. She went on to study photography as part of a bachelor of arts degree at Murdoch University and Curtin University in Perth and continued her studies in Sydney, completing an Advanced Certificate III in Photography from Ultimo TAFE College.

Jeffreys began documenting birds by way of photographic portraiture as a personal project in 2008. Her first series focused on the much loved family pets, budgerigars. A series of Australian native cockatoos followed in 2012. Her work has been exhibited widely throughout Australia, the United States, Hong Kong, and the UK.

Reviews

"There are some good looking birds out there, and fine-art photographer Leila Jeffreys has set out to snap them all. From owls to songbirds, cockatoos to eagles Leilas got them covered and the results are worth, ahem, tweeting about!" Love Sunday Magazine
