Wildlife Photography

We’ve all seen some amazing nature photography, but most of us do not consider the preparation involved. I’m currently watching a seminar by Tom Magelsen.
To get these shots require dedication… an incredible amount. Some shots merely require hours, others years. In his seminar, one shot he said he waited 10yrs (http://www.mangelsen.com/index.php/feature-image-snake-river-crossing-3047.html) for all the elements together, another 15 yrs.

Some amazing images.
Check out his work http://www.mangelsen.com/index.php/feature-images.html

What’s he use?  Nikon D4s with 600mm Lens & 1.7x extender, a Sachtler tripod and often a cable release.

While shooting otters he’s running full blast 11fps.
