“Wildlife” Photographers

GiraffePhotographers

Many people are surprised to learn that that amazing cougar image on their calender, or the Grizzly Bear in a magazine are not taken in the wild. Many of these great images are taken at game farms like Triple D. or controlled situations. When they find this out, they are often upset, feeling like they have been tricked or fooled.

I saw the above controlled scene with a giraffe and trainer, and a crew that was photographing and filming it. They would guide the trainer to move to certain position with a pail of food to get the shots they wanted. If we were to see the product of this shoot, we would probably think it was of a wild animal in Africa.
