Being a nature photographer is not an easy task


Nature Perfect Shot Come from Extra Mile

At first glance, being a wildlife photographer might seem cool — you can travel around the world, meet people from different cultures and, of course, take amazing shots everybody will admire later. But it’s not as simple as you may think, because this type of photography requires a lot of preparation and you never know what to expect from your models from one situation to the next.

Deadly encounter… Not really… People frequently explain to me that I have a dangerous job. Working close to elephants, tigers, polar bears, leopards, lions, sharks, illegal logging operations and venomous snakes such as this beauty. In my line of work doing serious research and reading nature well is key! It'll get my closer to my subjects and it has so far kept me alive! During a @natgeo assignment in the republic of Congo I managed, with kind assistance from Samuel, (my camera assistant at the time) and Zoltan (a great herpethologist), to close in on this beautiful banded water cobra! It resulted in a series of unique images of this rarely seen species. Go to @natgeo or follow this flow if you want see the "result-pictures". My life as a photographer and filmmaker has given me so much! It's very diversified and rarely uneventful and I get to work with a wonderful and skilled team…Photo by #samuelsvensäter/Tierragrande #grateful #teamwork #determination #respectnatur #watercobra #congo #cobra #snake #conservation #rainforest #respect #photooftheday #bestjobintheworld #instagood @bigworldsmallplanet @mattiasklumcollection @nikonprofessional @natgeocreative @thephotosociety @natgeo
