What is your advice to an aspiring wildlife photographer?

Be patient. Spend time in the field and double the time you think it will take you. I try to make images, not take pictures, I do this by envisioning a shot, and planning for the light and action of your subject. While I’m in the field, I stay in one position and stay still, but I let the animal know I am there. I let them sense my presence and determine what kind of encounter we have.
