How Close Can You Get?
Wildlife photography is both challenging and demanding. Many of those that work professionally in the area tend to use the very best equipment, including fast telephoto lenses, powerful flash/strobe units and carbon-fibre tripods. In addition portable GPS units, quality boots and outdoor gear are required to get the photographer to the location and keep them there in a relatively safe and comfortable manner. Serious wildlife photographers often utilise a whole manner of hides and camoflague clothing to get them within range of their subject, without causing a change in their behaviour. It's the fly on the wall, rather than a fly in the soup that you're looking to become.
