Photographing the magnificent Colorado Elk in its natural habitat is an exciting challenge. In this video from Rocky Mountain National Park, wildlife photographer, Doug Gardner, shows you plenty of tips and techniques.

Doug and fellow photographer, Michael Mauro, track an elk herd in a serene mountain valley. You will learn how to focus on the eye of the elk, why it makes sense to shoot rapid frames to get coverage, and what lenses work for long range portraits and for wider action shots. You will also get suggestions on learning to develop your own style.

Come along with pro shooter, Doug Gardner, and check out these wildlife photography tips on photographing elk up close.
