To take a good photograph is never easy. To take a great photograph of an uncooperative subject ­ like a bird for example ­ is even harder.... But to take the perfect image of a bird midst breath­taking behaviour is practically impossible. Bence Máté however, knows the trick, for he is invisible! To the bird’s eye, at least... At 16, Bence won his first prize at the BBC’s prestigious Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition. At age 25 ­ with even more international awards under his belt ­ he still continues to surprise the world with stunning wildlife images. Bence Máté has a special talent in hiding, hence his amazing success. The INVISIBLE WILDLIFE PHOTOGRAPHER simply disappears in one of his specially designed photography hides, from where he can enjoy, observe and ­ to the delight of most of us ­ capture what he sees. Birds and other animals are entirely unaware that Bence is close by, thus allowing him to photograph them in unique and rarely seen moments of intimate behaviour. A unique window on both bird behaviour and stunning imagery, as well as the ‘secrets’ of Bence’s success are filmed in this revealing documentary.
Water works wonders (EP 1) In Hungary, the summer plains are dry and arid but in their midst is a green oasis, the Kiskunsag region with its forests of oak trees. The foliage is full of life. There's plenty of food and shelter for them, but little water. The sandy landscape round here soaks up all the rain as it falls. Forest creatures must take every opportunity to drink.
Bence Mate goes to extreme lengths of stealth and cunning to hide himself from his wildlife subjects. He does become invisible… to them. The Invisible Wildlife Photographer has learnt that success comes from giving creatures what they most crave. Water.
