Taking great wildlife photos takes more than just skill and a good eye; it takes patience and flexibility. They won’t always show up when you expect them to and they won’t always behave the way you like, but having the flexibility to work with them will help you get great photos every time.
Animals are extremely unpredictable photography subjects, and wildlife can be particularly unpredictable. They don’t always go where you want them to or when you want them to, making shooting a challenge at times. This session will show you how to get great shots of wildlife even when they do not act the way they are expected to act.
This session emphasizes the flexibility and patience that is required with wildlife photography and teaches how to move into their space while causing as little disruption as possible. You will learn about spotting great photo opportunities in any situation and how to capture great wildlife photos.
