When doing wildlife photography, habituate your subjects through repeated long-term exposure to set them at ease or use blinds for quick results. Think like the biologist in Never Cry Wolf and gain your subject’s trust. It will pay off in the long run. Remember to research your subjects through the internet or at a local library and scout out signs of their passing.

Explore zoos, marine parks, botanical gardens, sanctuaries, etc. But DO NOT misrepresent your photos as having been taken in the wild. You can still get good photos just make sure the facility you attend is okay with what you plan to do with them.

Tentative Equipment:

  • Telephoto lenses
    • 70-200 mm
    • 200-400 mm
  • Makeshift Blind
  • Remote Cameras
  • Tripod
  • Cable Release
