Packed with hints, tips and essential information, this is a practical guide to getting started as a professional nature photographer. Its focus is on how the industry works, recognizing that success in this profession does not rely entirely on your skills of photography, but also on how you organize and market those talents.
Based on the author's own experience of running a successful nature photography business, Professional Nature Photography offers a unique insight into the essential tools and techniques: from the equipment you need, to researching and finding new clients, negotiating contracts, managing finance, working to a brief and an understanding of professional ethics.

7 stunning colour photographs
7 suggested approaches to typical assignments
7 realistic, practical advice for professional business practice
7 an appendix with addresses for agencies, societies and conservation organisations
The book also includes an overview of specialist skills, such as how to read difficult lighting conditions, shooting from a hide, stalking animals, photographing captive animals, photographing plants and underwater photography. The author sets the subject in context and includes a discussion of the impact of digital imaging, the role of nature photography in society and environmental matters.
Whether you are just starting out as a professional, or wishing to brush up on knowledge and skill, Professional Nature Photography is both an inspirational guide and an essential reference tool for hands-on information.
