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…

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…

He is a regular contributor to Outdoor Life and Field and Stream magazines, his images adorning multiple covers. He is also a videographer; much of his work has been featured on PBS Natural World documentaries. John is a New Yorker, he is extremely verbose and there…

Jackie Klieger’s Story

In the fall of 2012 I spent a life changing day at Out of Africa Wildlife Park in Camp Verde, Arizona. At Tiger Splash, I was amazed and intrigued to see 12 photographers standing behind the first fence with their long lenses sticking through holes in the fence. I immediately exclaimed, “I want to do that!” I learned that these people were part of the very first wildlife photography workshop at Out of Africa Park taught by Kathleen Reeder. Before…
