Wildlife photography is an adventure—and as any great adventure story unfolds, odds are, there are bound to be some great risks involved. Whether it’s the risk or the reward—or both—that motivates wildlife shooters, there is one pervasive truth: Preparation is key to success—and survival. In this book, Joe Classen approaches the art of wildlife photography from a hunter’s perspective. He teaches readers how to select and use the appropriate specialized photographic gear required for the rigors of wildlife photography—as you’d expect. However, he also teaches you how to mentally and physically prepare for an outing in which your wits must be as keen as your eye. Classen provides detailed insights into planning and packing for a wilderness adventure. Readers will learn how to securely pack their delicate photographic gear for a rugged, outdoor environment but will also learn how to choose and tote the best clothing for the site, accessories to ensure your personal safety, and even basic cooking and drinking requirements for days spent shooting in remote areas. Once you’ve scouted your location, you’ll learn how to track and lure your photographic subject using time-honored practices (calls—from lust to hunger, to anger and sloth; decoys; attractor scents; working invisibly, etc.) while “shooting” (your camera!) from a blind or stand—or, conversely, by using a more aggressive stalk-and-ambush approach. You’ll learn how to read animal behaviors—from eating to mating—and predict how, when, and where your best photographic opportunities will arise—and when your safety should be a greater concern than your shot. With this soup-to-nuts approach, readers will find, in this book, a compendium of information about wild-animal behavior, wilderness survival and safety, the art and science of photographic capture, and even storing and processing your prized digital files once you return home from your adventure. Armed with Classen’s suggestions and strategies, you’ll maximize your photo opportunities and increase the odds that your wildlife images are the mount-and-frame trophies for which you risked life and limb.

"From how many frames you need to shoot per second to capture that WOW moment to where to focus on a bird with a big beak to get the best depth of field, this book has it all for the wildlife photographer. It is an impressive mix of technology with just plain good advice for image-taking, and they discuss each point specifically for shooting wildlife, because it is a totally unique type of photography. The lighting and shutter speed for a macro flower shot is not the same that you'd need for a bird in flight or a kangaroo jumping across a field. Mix together this fantastic info with the many years of experience that the Gerlachs have shooting and teaching and the absolutely jaw-dropping images and you really do have a perfect storm for a book"--

Long overdue, this unique book is about wildlife photography, and the power it has to improve physical and mental wellbeing. Designed to appeal to a wide range of individuals, from beginners with very little photographic experience, through to those further along on their photographic journey, Wildlife Photography – saving my life one frame at a time offers practical help, tips and insight into the life of a professional photographer, who uses photography to help deal with his PTSD – brought on by a harrowing and traumatic experience whilst serving in the police force – and the physical reminders of various careers as soldier, mental health specialist, physical training instructor, and police officer. With general tips and points about equipment, fieldcraft and techniques, this fabulously-illustrated book of over 200 colour images seamlessly aligns photography with creative suggestions around mindfulness, wellbeing and holism to create a blueprint for all, and especially anyone experiencing poor mental or physical health, who would like to express themselves creatively in the natural world. Powerful words from the heart mix with breathtaking, unique and original images of some of Britain’s most elusive wildlife (and tantalising shots from photographic forays further afield) taken by an award-winning photographer and trauma survivor. Join Paul Williams on his journey from rock bottom – and three suicide attempts – to his rediscovery of a life worth living; filled, as it is, with the wonder of wildlife, captured in his stunning images, and a new-found sense of peace and wellbeing.
