Photo 2 Period 2
Animal Photography is the type of photography where the photographer captures the image of an animal.
The animal can be wild or a pet or big or small
It is important to make sure that the lighting is tolerable for the animal but also enough light to actually see it, so the photographer must be very careful- especially if the animal is wild.
Well depending on what job you get, you can work with a wide variety of animals from a goldfish in your bedroom to a lion in the middle of Africa. So if you want to work more with wild animals, then you should really consider completing 4 years of photography education and get a degree in zoology. Also, you might have to start off doing free lance photography which might eat up all your money.
Permits/ Licenses :
If you want to start a business or create a name for yourself if you want to be a free lance photographer.
Just know that if you are choosing to work on your own, it might be difficult to make a living as opposed to working for a National Geographic magazine.

For freelance photography, it is extremely hard to get your name out there and get good business. Freelance photographers spend the days taking pictures on their own to post on their own website (which they pay for) and wait for a client to call to take pictures of their dogs..
It is not recommended to become a freelance wildlife photographer because you will literally spend everything you have in order to pay for a plane ticket to another country.
Now you will make serious bank if you work for the San Diego Zoo or a magazine. Your flights will be paid for and you will have insurance from the company you are working for. Remember, the bigger name of the company, the better income and insurance,.
If I were interested in becoming a wildlife photographer, I would start off freelancing, make it to the zoo, submit photos for a job, then start taking pictures and submitting to the National Geographic Magazine.
