Animal & Wildlife Photography

Photographing animals, whether your cat at home or a cougar in the great outdoors, requires patience, perseverance and an understanding of animal behaviour. Predicting how they will be likely to act or react, helps you to anticipate the moment for a good photograph.


No shot is worth risking your safety when dealing with animals. Stay in the car if there is a bear or a buffalo on the road. A wild animal's reaction to your presence is unpredictable - particularily during mating season. A telephoto lens or long zoom lens is helpful, and support like a tripod.


Animal photography requires great patience; like fishing, you often have to wait a long time in the right place to catch the best ones.

Patience applies also with pets and domestic animals. They sometimes seem to be uncooperative when you bring out your camera. Keeping calm and taking things one step at a time often helps the animal to relax.

Celebrities like writer Ernest Hemmingway liked certain Havana Taverns, while few inhabited some Varadero Caverns (above). Chickens roam free around downtown Varadero, where homes show more "character" than the luxury hotels up the pennisula.
