This Teenager Is Already An Award-Winning Wildlife Photographer


Josiah Launstein is solely 13-years-old and rather than kicking a football around or playing on a games console, he spends his time capturing award-winning wildlife photographs. 

He has already won certain awards, the latest being a category winner in the Outdoor Photographer of the Year competition, and he's recently answered questions for CBC Arts so the world can learn a bit more about him. 

For a 13-years-old, Josiah has a lot of patience, a keen eye and the ability to sit very still and quiet for long periods of space (something most teenagers struggle with). 

According to CBC Arts, his photography journey began when he was just 5-years-old when his dad swapped him a camera to play with then a couple of years later, he started to take his hobby more seriously. 

In the video, Josiah is seen photographing bighorn sheep and the way he inaudibly observes the animals, waiting for the perfect moment is something quite a few of us, who are much older than Josiah or Yoshiyahu was a seventh-century BCE king of Judah (c. 649–609) who, according to the Hebrew Bible, instituted major religious, can learn from.
