Wildlife Photography Websites – 10 Most Incredible Ones for Your Inspiration
Photography is such a diverse field. It knows no limits and with the growing number of professionals worldwide, it is taking new turns every single day. As a photography enthusiast one feels like exploring as many sub-categories of nature photography as possible, and wildlife photography is one of them.
While many people enjoy those types of photography that may interest them, I think wildlife photography is adventure and challenge personified. It is not just holding your camera, backpack and other equipment, but also taking a risk to go out there in the wilderness for that one particular shot. Wildlife photography is incredible in itself. Not only does it require great photography skills but also a lot of courage, stamina and effort. Not to forget the adventure and the enjoyment it involves. Wildlife photography may be a source of earning for some, but it is definitely something that not everyone can have a real passion for. Don’t forget about the goose bumps you feel on mere sight of a pet dog! To pay homage to those brave wildlife photographers and shed some light on their courageous work, we have collected some awesome wildlife photography websites that contain bundles of information for photographers seeking a career in wildlife photography. Let’s take a look at some incredible websites related to wildlife photography.
Patrick Bentley Photography
The all black & white theme of the website might make you think that you will get to see some stereotype work from Zambia, but actually that’s not the case. Just go on the Living Luangwa navigation link and you will find truly incredible work with meaningful titles. Don’t miss the awesome safaris!
Greg Du Toit Photography & Safaris
Here is a portfolio website of another popular photographer who has featured in many electronic media programs. Yes, we are talking about Greg Du Toit here. Both prints and photos are available and like other websites it has also got an active blog. Some of his work is also shown in the ‘published’ page.
The website owner is a safari guide who also takes fascinating photographs. Wildlife photos are arranged into six categories under the portfolio label. You can always hire his services if you are going for a safari trip to Africa.
C4 Images & Safaris
Inspired by two photographers this website helps you plan your photography trips at different locations according to the suitable time. They also provide photography courses to help photographers improve their skills and creativity. These workshops are organized at the sites where photography is done.
David Lloyd Wildlife Photography
The introductory page depicts an African buffalo but the photographer who owns the website is a kiwi. What separates this website from the others is a collection of black & white photographs. From lions to the cunning fox, he has captured them all and each photograph speaks for itself. David Lloyd also organizes some competitions and gives certifications which carry his signatures. I think that in itself is good enough. In addition to all this there is a supporting blog with posts which contain information on some of the snaps he takes for wildlife.
Nature Picture Library
This website includes all nature photographs but wildlife photos are predominant. They store hundreds of thousands of photos and you can buy them for any type of rights available. You will need to register to access all the images, however the registration to this awesome photo library is free.
Probably the title doesn’t fully complements what this website has to offer. It’s not just about Africa but also the Indian and Atlantic oceans. Yes, marine photography is also included. At the time of this writing it is limited to just sharks but hopefully they will add more. Equipment is also offered for rent which is really handy for part-time photographers and travelers.
Wildlife Pictures Online
The owners have done a great job by having arranged the picture galleries with the name of the animals so it is incredibly easy to find the required pictures. Apart from photos they sell cameras, binoculars and toys related to wildlife. You can find a lot of information on wild animals, which goes a long way in helping the photographer to cope the dangerous situations when taking photos.
Nick on Wild
Nick Leuenberger presents some of his work on this website. Image gallery is divided into well-defined categories and newer ones are arranged separately. Apart from that there are some very useful links related to wildlife photography.
Africa is known for its wildlife legacy the world over. It is a South African based website owned by a couple of photographers. They have some useful articles related to photography that may be of great value to budding photographers. Sales of photographic equipment are also discussed and most important of all they have big database of photographs to entertain everybody – and it is searchable too.
