The majestic caribou live in remote areas of Alaska’s Lake Clark National Park and Preserve. In this video, pro wildlife photographer Doug Gardner gives you tips on how to photograph these shy elusive animals. To get within camera range of the caribou herd, Doug and his guide Glen Alsworth have to crawl along the tundra. Doug waits patiently for the breaking sunlight to fall over the caribou before making his exposures. He uses a 500mm telephoto lens with a 1.4 converter.
