35 Beautiful Examples Of Animals Photography

Animal photography is probably one of the most dangerous types of photography. The outcome totally depends on the skills of photographer and the time when the shot is taken. A photographer who uses good exposure, color and blur settings along with appropriate shutter speed and focusing techniques can produce stunning photographs.

Animal photographers have to be prepared and be ready for the unknown. They need to study action and language of animals to know every move. Many animal photographers use camouflage to hide themselves and to give photographs a natural and “natural” look. When shooting in wildness, photographers usually shoot with long telephoto lenses from a distance.

Below we feature 35 beautiful examples of animal photography, photos of wild, tamed and other animals. All photographs are linked and lead to the source – the respective photographers. Do not forget to explore further works of these talented photographers. Please notice that the collection presented below is supposed to only give you some inspiration, it can and should be extended; please feel free to suggest links to further resources in the comments to this posts.

    Very nice and inspiring images. I was recently at the Wildlife Photographer of the Year Exhibition in London and I was able to see some absolutely stunning examples of wildlife photography. The only problem I often have with these kind of selections is that people usually go for the cute and cuddly side of things. My favourite wildlife images are the raw, wild ones that show an animal in it’s often unforgiving and brutal environment.

    My dad is a photographer and over the last couple of years has been getting heavily into the wildlife side of things. You can see some of his work (which includes landscape and portraits too) over at his website

    Overall though a very inspiring gallery. I particularly like the Eagle and the Bat.

    I could NEVER take photos like this even with the right gear, so people who can, I admire you, but the picture of the dog as an example of ‘Beautiful’ photography. Not so sure on that one.

    Gotta love Reyes pic of the monkey. Great moment captured in b&w. No colour needed there to convey the beauty in that shot.
