Wildlife Photography

We  never proclaim to be professional photographers at Trek, however we do know a trick or two in wildlife photography and manage to get some amazing shots. All the images on the site have been captured by Trek leaders using DSLR cameras, and we are more than happy to share our photography knowledge and show you the best ways of using your cameras while on tour. If you are new to the game then we will most certainly be of assistance, if you are well versed in photography then we can compare notes. One thing is for sure, we always strive to get you to the right place at the right time for the best wildlife shots.
Wildlife photography differs greatly from many other types as your subject is alive and moving rather than static or staged. The subjects are wild animals in their natural habitat, and they should be photographed as such. For example, a cheetah could be photographed protecting herself from the hot sun under the shade of a tree, or indeed in mid-pounce while bringing down prey. The latter can take a lot of time and patience to capture as the photographer may need to sit in wait of such an event to occur. However, such shots can also be captured opportunistically by passing through the right place at the right time. Wildlife photography is predictably unpredictable, and this is what makes it so exciting and rewarding.
