It is a myth that wildlife photography is a high-budget and expensive hobby. It is an affordable career choice.


Wildlife images are breathtaking and amazing. From these pictures and videos, we can learn about places and animals that we may never be lucky enough to see. 

To be able to shoot wildlife well, you need to know the ecosystem - animal behavior and habits, where to set up and when to shoot. It’s advisable to buy the longest telephoto lens with the widest aperture. You can shoot equally well with a prime or a zoom lens.

But the best camera for wildlife photography isn’t just the one with the longest lens. Sometimes the great shot is a wide-angle that shows less of the animal and more of its behaviour and environment. And sometimes a macro is the thing to capture the microscopic world of insects.
