The Five “P’s” of Better Wildlife Photography

Today's article from Picture Correct, creates a new slogan particularly for photographing wildlife and is written by Mario Fazekas, a wildlife photographer from South Africa, whose website is Kruger to Kalahari.

We have seen a few different slogans relating to the five “P’s” for improving photography in general such as ‘Proper Planning Prevents Poor Performance’ or ‘Proper Planning Produces Perfect Photos’ but nothing detailed or specific to wildlife photography. We therefore compiled the following list of five “P’s” that if followed, will assist you in capturing better wildlife photographs................Follow this link to read the full article.
Here are a few of my own wildlife photographs which I hope you enjoy.
Presidential Elephant
We saw the Presidential Elephant Herd, which were obviously used to tourists and came very close to our vehicle. This one was only about five feet away. The herd was given its name after President Robert Mugabe awarded it a presidential decree in 1990, although nowadays its future is in doubt.

Baby Red Colobus Monkey
The Zanzibar Red Colobus (Piliocolobus kirkii) is a species of red colobus monkey endemic to Unguja, the main island of the Zanzibar archipelago. The Zanzibar Red Colobus is endangered and there are about 1.500 monkeys left.
