Take a walk on the wild side with 30 exciting 1x shots

by Paulo Abrantes 

There were times that just professional photographers had access to this very strict photography genre.
Nowadays days, wildlife photography became a very serious business and mainly it is just a question of having the budget to travel there and to buy the entire “program” to do it, just because, like everybody knows, the gear also is a non issue if we consider the hundreds of rentals possibilities.

If you are thinking this is “to wild” for you, just think that the “birds” living free in your city main park, or in your village, are not as wild as a lion in the “jungle” but maybe, just maybe, they are more wild than a lion locked in a Zoo and for sure they are wild enough to be a subject of a great “nature” photograph.

By the way…, a beautiful portrait of a lion, taken with a big telelens in a Zoo with the background blurred in order to hide where it was taken could be considered as a “wild life” photograph? I leave the question open.

Meanwhile, here goes a secure and safe “walk on the wild side” and definitely not in a City Zoo”.
