    — First it might please us to know that these photographers always work with locals and rangers. So, if you are a hunter here and you know where a cluster of interesting wildlife can be found in Nigeria- rather than kill them for pepper soup, reach out to these guys.

    1—Camouflage; This is perfect not just for unpredictable animals, but for shy and fast moving animals too (e.g) birds. After a series of failed attempts, a wildlife photographer, Henryk Janowski, came up with an ingenious disguise to get close to his subjects. He built a floating swan that could support his equipment. Unperturbed by the size of the swan, he floated around the birds and got good pictures/videos.

    Pictures of the swan and some photos he took.

    2—They Follow Them; They have good knowledge of these animals and know where to find them. So, they keep following them. This requires lots of patience. It takes them months and even years to come up with some documentaries we watch. They drive in trucks; trucks built for the job as they have something like a crane that can drop/lift the camera or platforms to place cameras. It is sometimes equipped with a chair that gives the photographer an opportunity to sit closer at a height. The camera would be controlled by a handheld device.

    3—Use Remote Cameras/ Telephoto Lens; This is pretty self explanatory. Cameras can also be camouflaged or kept in the path of these animals and be controlled remotely. The telephoto lens allows them to capture closeup images from a far distance.

    4— Allow Them Get Used To You; I have seen several wildlife photographers say they had to visit a spot everyday till the animal took them as a part of the landscape and even came close. However, they say the rule is never to go to the animal, allow it come to you.

    5— Dive Right In; As unbelievable as it sounds, a lot of marine photographers actually take live pictures of sharks and crocodiles. They go with expert shark researchers, marine biologists and the likes.

    6—Drones and Attached cameras; Thanks to technology, drones can be used to follow these animals and they can have cameras attached to them, especially the aquatic ones.
