Wildlife photography means spending money. I love walking with my dog and taking my camera with me. I also love animals. This means I have had years to work on various techniques - and of course collected an impressive collection of bird, local wildlife and plant and landcape pictures along the way.
On the plus side there is much less admin and organisation for a pet shoot and they are always spontaneous. They also couldn't care less if you happen to capture a few wrinkles or grey hairs in the shot.
