  1. Great tips. I live in a wooded subdivision with a lot of deer. So they are pretty comfortable around people in general. I learned a number of years back that if I just wander down in the woods with them and walk around doing what they are doing they pretty much ignore me. I toss an acorn or two their way and they will actually walk up and eat it. To some extent they will actually follow me around. Conversely, when my girlfriend came over not used to seeing deer up close she would lock eyes with them and they immediately go on alert and won't take their eyes off her. I likened to her as imagine if you walked into Walmart and you saw someone starting at you. You would feel very uncomfortable. Animals see anything focused and staring at them as a possible predator or aggressor. p.s. don't try this with moose or bears :>)

  2. Dear Steve,
    Your tips are very good. Especially some of them are really vital for wildlife photography.
    Thanks a lot.

  5. I own the ebook and have to say the content is the gem. Thank you, Steve!

  6. have you ever used the tc301 in all your years of photography? I have the tc14b and i'm pleased with the results. I use manual focus already with mostly ais prime lenses in my bag. just concerned with iq. (hoping to buy a 500 or 600 ais next summer) really enjoy your vid's. thanks phil

  9. Hi Henrik

    Sorry, for some reason YT isn't letting me reply to your comment directly. The book goes over a lot of tips for working with wildlife, how to use parks to you advantage, how to position yourself for good shots etc. As for finding animals, it doesn't really go into too much – other than to say to look for where they are most common.

    The problem is every animal has a different habitat and there's no silver bullet for where to look / wait for them. Each species is different, and the approach I'd take for a coyote would be different than for a heron.

    So, I guess the answer to your question is yes & no 🙂 It points you in the direction you need, but when it comes down to where to find specific wildlife, that's up to you. (although I do list a lot of my favorite places here in the states for shooting and what to expect).

    Thanks!

  10. Does your ebook teach how to find animals, where to wait for animals and how to hide from animals, etc?
