Turning Pro– Wildlife

On an ongoing basis I receive a handful of emails each day from young aspiring photographers expressing passion for wildlife & photography. Their emails translate to one question in broad; “How do I become a wildlife photographer?” Although context of the emails also raise the question of becoming a professional wildlife photographer, most of the emails are very modest and do not ask a direct question. I appreciate all your emails and feel guilty for not being able to reply constantly and hence decided to write this piece that addresses most of your questions. Before I jump to the tips, tricks & best practices it would be appropriate to share my background with this subject.
