How to Take Pictures of Wild Animals

Taking pictures of wild animals can be an intriguing and exciting adventure. If you are going somewhere there will be wild animals there are a few things to know about taking pictures of them. I cannot stress enough that Wild Animals are called Wild for a reason. The most important to know is to stay safe. If you can stay in or close to your vehicle, this would be the best idea. My tips will help you learn how take the pictures. Your practice will help you perfect them.



1. Camera

2. Telephoto Lens

3. Stable Tripod

4. Patience


• The first and most important thing to consider is RESEARCH. Do it. IT will be the most beneficial thing you can do. You need to understand the animal you are shooting. If you are shooting a fast animal you need to be ready to follow the animal as it moves and set your camera accordingly. If you are shooting an animal that might not be very active, you know you will be able to get the best crisp shot possible.

• Once you have done your research and you are in the field ready to shoot, it is best to find a stationery object; such as a tree or rock, that is in the general vicinity of the area in which the animal is expected. Doing this allows you to adjust your camera for the lighting and ensures the best shot possible.

• When shooting it may take a while for an animal to come to the area expected. To ensure you are ready for the shot when the animal is there, make sure you use a tripod or monopod. Using a support device will help your arms to not become tired and shaky resulting in either a missed shot or an unusable picture.

• Once everything is ready….Be Patient. Animals can be very hard to shoot in the wild and when they come around you want to be ready. Just remember that they are on their schedule. 

• When the animal appears start snapping. Do not take the time to look at each picture on the lcd monitor. This could be your only chance to see the animal and to waste it would result in a failed day. BE ready!
