Wildlife photography is what happens when someone who loves photography and animals enough goes into their natural environment to document their life in their natural habitat.
To be a good wildlife photographer, you must first be a skilled outdoor person. It's not easy to get close to a wild animal without being spotted. You can either scare it away or put your own life at risk. You also need to know a little about your targeted species. Things like eating habits, places they rest and matting seasons are all important information.
Gear wise, wildlife photography is very similar to sports photography. You need a long lens and ideally a fast camera. Depending on the environment you also need to war the right clothing in order to remain unspotted.
Photographing wild animals is a thrill and it is highly rewarding, although it isn't one of the most monetized genres.
