Could you recommend the 1.7 x teleconvertor for consumer zoom lenses like the AF 70-210 or 70-300
Do you or can you do a beginners series? Like how to started in that kinda business and what is a good starter camera.
same song as the vid “patience in the field” by mauromedia loooool
I agree with jerseyman.
Wish he’d talk more about Aperture, Camera, Exposure, Settings and Tips of Photography than he talk about Animals.
i wish i had these kind of cameras right now all i have is a 16 mega pixel camera
I’m 13 years old, and really intrested in Wildlife photography. I have a Canon EOS 20d. Also, a 90-300mm lens. I am saving up for a 50-500mm. I was wandering if you new any good places to buy cheap lenses. If you have any tips for a beginer, I will be truely honoured. Another question, do you know any good places to photograph in the west midlands (that where I am located) When does Wild Photo Adventure start. I heard it starts in April 2011 but coudln’t find it. Hope you can help.

Yes, it is a fixed 500mm, however by using 1.4x and/or a 2x teleconverter I can get much tighter shots. Also, sometimes the animal is moving towards me which allows me to get tighter shots as well. Thanks for watching! Season 3 (in HD) starts in a couple weeks on PBS and online.
I assume your lens is a fixed 500mm. im just getting into telephoto photography. how would you zoom in on different part if the lens is fixed? i notice you get pictures of the same subject closer and farther away with that lens which is why i ask.
Great, Canon <3
Owowowowo I like to be with you guys .. I like photography animal ..but i’m still secondary ..
@Jakob1056687 Canon EOS 1D Mark IV or Mark III, but i think IV though it got 10 fps.
The lens are probably 500mm.
What Camera du you/he use?
lol 3:97 he’s like a gangster with the straw in his mouth.like yeah.i’m da man!or..da elk!
fantastic park , superb nature
nice one! gr8 vid! nothing better than being out in the field capturing the moment!
The camo stays on the camera gear all the time, regardless of what I’m shooting. As for the orange jacket….we were in areas where hunting is allowed and the law states that at least one person in a group must me wearing safety orange. ( I probably should have mentioned that in the show, huh!)
But the interesting thing is that most large mammals are color blind, so the orange would look medium gray to the animals.
but Camo on the camera gear and a bright orange Jacket?
Great stuff Doug. Thanks!
I love what I do and willing to take risks to create books for children on endangered animals. But usually, if I do all my research, and have a good local guide, I’m safe.
Cant Imagine you are riskin ur own life for some awesome pics is too brave….Now thats called a PHOTOGRAPHER……..Ohh i mean WILDLIFE PHOTOGRAPHER
Thanks. You must go to Africa and follow your dream. I’m so lucky to be doing something I love, and helping children understand endangered animals. I went to Borneo in September to create Ollie the orangutan book. It should be on utube and my website tomorrow.
You have no idea on how jealous I am of you. I’d love to go to Africa for a shoot, and stay in my hut. Wait till the sun starts to rise go out and take pictures. To learn to live on my own and to adapt. I can’t wait to go out and buy your book. Simply inspirational. Makes me want to go out and take pictures again.
I used to have pictures of Africa all over my wall as a kid. Wish one day I’ll be the one taking the photos.
I wish I could hold a 600mm lense! Just watched your video, it’s great! Nice to meet another self-taught photographer. I learnt in the wild with Karl Ammann, a famous wildlife photographer. He was generous with his time and knowledge.
my way of being safe is a nice big 600mm
Also see African Safari with Jan Latta on you tube. I filmed this in February in Samburu and the Maasi Mara,
Yes, it’s a wonderful thing to do. Especially when photographs can tell a story in a book so children can learn about endangered animals.
@quickshooter100 That’s you’re first taste of being a wildlife photographer………..rejection! Get use to it. Lots of talented people out there. That’s your competition. Especially now, the bottom dropped out of publishing in 2009. Lots of things are being done house. OUTSIDE magazine still owes me for doing an article for them 7 months ago! That’s how tough it is out there. Talent and persistance will win out. If Goblinia want to do it, so be it but be a where if the pressures involved.
good on you janlatta1!!! no better thing in world than wildlife and photography combined! i love it1
@hemming57 hardly helpful! i think your the one who will never makle it !!
@goblinia Forget it! You’ll never make it!
like the vid thnx for posting, im hoping to be a wildlife photographer in the BBC but they require people with really high GCSE results so i need to really work but i can relax because im onley in middle school lol
To be a wildlife photographer you must first learn all about the animals you want to photograph. I learnt photography in the wild in Africa, India and up the mountains in China. Take lessons from a photographer who has had experience in the wild. Good luck!
please help me out i really want t o be a wildlife photographer but i m not sure wat education i should get??
is it arts??? or wat please help
Good to see that not all great pictures are taken with D3′s and lenses longer than your arm and more expensive than a car.
The camerman who shot the film is not available to reply as he’s somewhere in Africa at the moment. For all my still photographs on the video I’m using a Nikon F90, 120 lense and digital Nikon D90.
What type of lenses did u use?
