If you’re serious about taking up wildlife photography as a hobby, make sure you choose an SLR camera with a manual mode. This will give you complete control over your images. Another tip is to make sure to stock up on interchangeable lenses so you can easily take photos of the smallest and the largest animals around from both close-up and far away.

Don’t forget to protect yourself and your camera from the elements and invest in protective gear. The type of protective gear you need to buy will depend on where you plan on shooting your photos, but a waterproof camera bag or a backpack is a must, no matter what.
