The Nature of Black Bears Part 4

One of the number-one questions that I receive about photographing bears is “How do you stay safe?” To some degree, that’s what this whole discussion about bears has been about.

workshop level education from working professional wildlife photographers

Learning to become a wildlife photographer is time-consuming. It can take years to learn the ropes and hone your skills. Different animals require different tactics. The editing process is wholly different from other genera of photography. And most photographers progress at a glacial pace, inch by inch, for this reason.

The Journal of Wildlife Photography changes that by bringing you workshop level education from working professional wildlife photographers. Using real-world examples and giving you access to countless years of collective experience, the Journal will make you a better photographer. Guaranteed.

The Nature of Black Bears Part 3

The Nature of Black Bears Part 2

Last week, I discussed the most rudimentary stuff you need to understand about trying to analyze the behavior of black bears (Ursus americanus) in the wild. Understanding things like lip pursing, huffing, jaw popping, salivating, swatting the ground with a paw, etc… All of these are tells. All of these are signs of a stressed-out […]

In the Forest with Endangered Species Part 2

I have spent years exploring the longleaf savannahs of the American southeast simply because few other wildlife photographers do. But then again, maybe there is more to it than that.

In the Forest with Endangered Species

I’m sitting in the most comfortable “blind” I have ever used. At the moment, the temperature is in the upper 60s, a light wind blows through the forest out of the northeast, and the glow of the sun is still filtering through the trees behind me. Technically speaking, this isn’t a blind at all. It’s […]

The Art of Composition Part Nine

workshop level education from working professional wildlife photographers

Learning to become a wildlife photographer is time-consuming. It can take years to learn the ropes and hone your skills. Different animals require different tactics. The editing process is wholly different from other genera of photography. And most photographers progress at a glacial pace, inch by inch, for this reason.

The Art of Composition Part Eight

  In last week’s discussion, I talked about how perspective, and specifically camera angle, can impact how we see and think about our subject. The lower we get below the eyes of our subject, the more powerful our subject becomes in our composition. Consider any portrait you have seen of a president of the United […]

The Art of Composition Part Seven: Perspective Part Two

As I discussed last week, the concept of perspective, especially in wildlife photography, is so much more than just vanishing points in our compositions. Perspective completely changes the look, the feel, and the psychological impression a composition has on a person looking at the photograph. Understanding the connection between psychology and art is important for […]

The Art of Composition Part Six: Perspective Part One

From the beginning of this series, “The Art of Composition,” we got bogged down in discussion about depth of field. This isn’t exactly a topic that is typically brought into the conversation about composition. Yet, I have a difficult time thinking of a better place to begin. The ability to understand how we include or […]

The Art of Composition Part Five

In the last installment of this Art of Composition series, I discussed the differences between APS-C (crop) sensors and full-frame sensors in relation to depth of field (DOF from here on out). And since DOF, and thus bokeh, are incredibly important to the “look and feel” of our photographs (read: composition), I am going into […]

The Art of Composition Part One

Ever since 1816, when Nicéphore Niépce first experimented with projecting an image from his homemade camera obscura onto a piece of paper coated in silver chloride, the world of art has been divided. This rift, this schism, if you will, was sparked by a single question: Is photography art? If you want a powerful introduction to […]
