Wildlife Photography – Basic Rules Number 1 – Have Patience!

Quite a few people have asked me in the past about my secrets for wildlife photography.

There are no secrets just some basic rules. Over the next few days I will publish those rules on my blog. Enjoy them.

If you have any eye to capture a scene and if you adhere to these rules, you will create some great pictures.

Rule Number 1 – Have patience!

It does not matter if you shoot in the wild, in a zoo or just your pets. You need patience. Spend a lot of time with an animal and you will see amazing things. I often spend hours in front of one exhibit at a zoo or an animal in the wild.
