on Wildlife Photography In Kruger ~ A Q&A With Ranger Nick Sims

Join the conversationJoin the conversation

Hi Jemma, thanks for explaining the art of photography and especially wild life photography. It is tricky and a person must know your camera. I’m sure night photography is something different as well. Your photography is beautiful in your house and I’m sure your very proud of your success. Last night’s TWIP had a problem, I could not go in at all.

Marvelous article and the Photos of Nick Sims are the best! Thank you!

Cracking article, super photos .

Animals like the little klipspringer or the dik-dik are such a joy

Jemma, thanks for the photography lessons. Tell Nick thanks for all the information about using cameras in different situations.

Hi Jemma, all pictures are beautiful but the leopard cubs are to die for! Their soft and deep expression steal everybody’s heart. Seven lion cubs are a special sight! I then especially love the Impala lily’s flowers and the giraffe at sunset, also the ostrich in the golden light. Thank you for the useful advice!

Really beautiful photos! The one with the klipspringers is my favorite

Jemma, Thanks for the enlightening interview with Nick! His advice was outstanding and we can’t wait to get back on a Londolozi vehicle to put some his tips to work!

Really informative photography blog. Not sure if anyone has notified you that This Week In Pictures was unable to open for viewing.

A good article and the pics are fantastic. Thanks for sharing.

Well said Jenna & Nick … very nice tutorial!!!

Informative post with lovely photos. The vervet monkeys and the Ximungwe cub are my favorites. Besides great subjects, I like that both have strong compositions leading the eye through the frame, good contrast and textures. Thanks!

Thanks Jemma and Nick for this super informative article, as well as all the beautiful images!

Thank you for your interview with Nick regarding wildlife photography. Tips are always welcome and no matter how often I visit the bush, there’s always something new to shoot. Nick’s images are wonderful and I appreciate him sharing. I especially like the triptych and hopefully on my next trip, I can have one made in the studio.

I’m disappointed that TWIP had a glitch and we couldn’t open the blog.

Great tips from Nick, Jemma ! I’m afraid I’m a long way from creating anything as stunning as he has but as he says practice makes perfect. The little creatures and the flowers with a macro lens would be my avenue as I think in the long run I would stick to enjoying the moment more with no camera viewing the bigger game
