Wildlife photography is one of my favorite kinds of photography, you don’t need to worry about someone complaining about looking fat or complaining about your rates. You can just go out, spend some time in nature and practice your photography skills.
While browsing youtube I came across this wonderful video where 18year Wildlife photography veteran Michael Mauro talks about the importance of patience in Wildlife photography. In the video we join Michael as he is out on a refuge waiting for some Whitetail Deer. He has his 500 F4, and 1D Mark III – the video is from 2008 so his body has likely changed since then – but the video is not about the gear he is using it’s about knowing your environment, the subject of your images, and being patient.
Take a look at the video below and then head over to Michael’s website to check out some of his work.
