Steve Hinczynski Shines Light on Photographing Sharks

It’s very flattering to have a fellow photographer, especially one as talented as Kathleen, ask you to be a guest blogger to talk about your own photography. So, let me start off with a big thank you to Kathleen for the invite. I met Kathleen thru a mutual friend, Prayeri Harrison, one of the owners/founders of Out of Africa Wildlife Park in Arizona.

Minnesota Black Bears and Wildlife Connection 2017 Trip Report

Minnesota is the most northern state outside of Alaska, and has 90,000 miles of shoreline, more than California, Florida and Hawaii combined. There are an estimated 12,000-15,000 black bears in Minnesota. Photographing the North American Black Bear was the purpose of this 3-day photo workshop and it was wildly successful with over 150 sightings. Check out the photos below to see a sampling of the bears my group photographed and how close we were on the ground to these free-roaming animals.…

Peggy Coleman Shares How First Impressions Became Nature Impressions

About ten years ago, a photography workshop seemed the natural next step on my photography “voyage of discovery.” Arizona Highways Photo Workshops provided the opportunity at the Wildlife World Zoo in Litchfield Park, Arizona. That’s when I met Kathleen Reeder, who was the workshop assistant to the photographer back then. It did not take me long to realize Kathleen was the “go to gal” for questions and camera settings. After the workshop, I invited her to friend me on Facebook. She did…

Magic of Africa – 2017 Trip Report

There is nothing quite like photographing wildlife in Africa, in-person and up-close.

One night in Joburg, 4 nights at Mashatu and 3 nights at MalaMala. If you want GREAT wildlife photos, these are must do destinations. Take a look at…

The Little Lions and Crocodile

In a split second, a potentially great wildlife photo is here and gone, forever. That’s why I suggest shooting in burst or continuous high release mode when there is a possibility of fast action. With continuous high release, when you press and hold down on the shutter-release button, the camera will take the maximum number of photos possible until the memory buffer is full or you lift your finger. The benefit is you have a sequence of the action shots…
