Wildlife Photography Video clip Score: 4 / five
what a lovely thought… keep up the good work.. cheers
Follow your dream, everything is possible. I create images so children can learn about endangered animals for my series of True to Life Books. It’s so rewarding .
What a great job. I´m sports and events photographer in Argentina. But I dream about going to Africa and take pictures like yours. Gear is so expensive here, but I think I could manage myself with the gear I have (nikon D3. 70-200 2.8, teleconverter 1.4x). Congratulations on your images. Best Wishes for you and thanks for sharing what you do, it is so inpiring to those like me who dream about doing that someday.!
Yes, wildlife photography is possible from a wheelchair. I spend a lot of time sitting in a jeep patiently waiting to take photographs. You can be sitting comfortably in your wheelchair. Good luck and enjoy the journey.
I am wheelchair user is wildlife photography possible for someone in my situation do you think ok obvious not the kind of amazing stuff your able to do but uk wildlife
I love what I do and willing to take risks to create books for children on endangered animals. But usually, if I do all my research, and have a good local guide, I’m safe.
Cant Imagine you are riskin ur own life for some awesome pics is too brave….Now thats called a PHOTOGRAPHER……..Ohh i mean WILDLIFE PHOTOGRAPHER
Thanks. You must go to Africa and follow your dream. I’m so lucky to be doing something I love, and helping children understand endangered animals. I went to Borneo in September to create Ollie the orangutan book. It should be on utube and my website tomorrow.
You have no idea on how jealous I am of you. I’d love to go to Africa for a shoot, and stay in my hut. Wait till the sun starts to rise go out and take pictures. To learn to live on my own and to adapt. I can’t wait to go out and buy your book. Simply inspirational. Makes me want to go out and take pictures again.
I used to have pictures of Africa all over my wall as a kid. Wish one day I’ll be the one taking the photos.
I wish I could hold a 600mm lense! Just watched your video, it’s great! Nice to meet another self-taught photographer. I learnt in the wild with Karl Ammann, a famous wildlife photographer. He was generous with his time and knowledge.
Also see African Safari with Jan Latta on you tube. I filmed this in February in Samburu and the Maasi Mara,
Yes, it’s a wonderful thing to do. Especially when photographs can tell a story in a book so children can learn about endangered animals.
That’s you’re first taste of being a wildlife photographer………..rejection! Get use to it. Lots of talented people out there. That’s your competition. Especially now, the bottom dropped out of publishing in 2009. Lots of things are being done house. OUTSIDE magazine still owes me for doing an article for them 7 months ago! That’s how tough it is out there. Talent and persistance will win out. If Goblinia want to do it, so be it but be a where if the pressures involved.
Forget it! You’ll never make it!
To be a wildlife photographer you must first learn all about the animals you want to photograph. I learnt photography in the wild in Africa, India and up the mountains in China. Take lessons from a photographer who has had experience in the wild. Good luck!
please help me out i really want t o be a wildlife photographer but i m not sure wat education i should get??
is it arts??? or wat please help
Good to see that not all great pictures are taken with D3’s and lenses longer than your arm and more expensive than a car.
The camerman who shot the film is not available to reply as he’s somewhere in Africa at the moment. For all my still photographs on the video I’m using a Nikon F90, 120 lense and digital Nikon D90.
What type of lenses did u use?
