If you like to be surrounded by fresh air, enjoy a sunset and observe the life of animals in the wild, then we are sure that nature photography is your thing.

Whether you are fully dedicated to nature photography or just a great hobby. Knowing how to wait for the right moment, to capture the vastness and beauty of the environment in a single image, is a unique task that only professional nature photographers are able to achieve.

“In nature photography you have to know how to capture movement, colours and vitality in the same instant”.

What is nature photography?

nature-photography-1-arcadina

Nature photography is about capturing the beauty of a landscape with all its animated elements such as plants, animals and inanimate landscapes, such as a large rocky mountain in each image.

You can also try capturing the landscape at different times of the day or year. Here you can play with the different elements of the environment such as waiting for: the sunset, the different moments of a heavy foggy day or capturing the right moment on a stormy night.

“In nature photography even the most ordinary moments can become surprising and unique images”.

How to take nature photography that captures the beauty of the environment?

When organising a nature photography session you have to take into account several aspects to make the hike worthwhile. Some of these details can be:

  • Timetable. Whether you are going to photograph a landscape or a certain species of animal, researching and knowing what timetable is most suitable will be the starting point for organising your nature photography report.

  • Time of year. As with the time of year, photographing a mountain covered with vegetation in the spring season is not the same as photographing a mountain covered with snow in the winter season. Therefore, photographers dedicated to photographing natural landscapes and animals in the wild tend to be quite proactive when planning their trips to the countryside.

  • Know the habits of your models. If you are going to photograph animals in their natural habitat, you need to know very well in advance their habits and habits in each season. This information will be essential to know where and when to look for them.

  • Camouflage. When photographing certain animals, especially at medium distances, it is highly recommended that you go into the field well equipped with camouflage clothing. The idea is to blend in with your surroundings and not scare off the herd when you are approaching them.

  • Targets. Depending on whether you are going to photograph a large area, a plant at close range or, for example, the flight of a dragonfly. The type of lens you use will be essential to capture the scene you really want to capture.

What are the types of nature photography?

nature-photography-3-arcadina

Within nature photography you can find many types of photo shoots. Here are some of them:

  • Flora photography: in this type of session, the photographer will be in charge of immortalising nature more closely. For example, capturing the different species of flowers that come out in spring or the vegetation that lasts in winter.

  • Images of animals in their natural habitat: to take these photographs you have to take into account the distance at which the shots can be taken and the behaviour of each species.

  • Landscape photography reportages: in these images we usually look for wider shots to capture the beauty of a whole natural environment where the following will be integrated in the image: the flora of the place, part of its fauna and the still life.

  • Night or astronomical photography: if you want to photograph the stars or a stormy night, this will undoubtedly be your speciality. In this discipline it is important to bear in mind the time of year and the weather.

  • Underwater reports: shooting images underwater is not an easy task but the results can be truly amazing. If you like to dive and capture this almost unexplored world, underwater photography will be your medium.

How can I sell landscape photography through my website?

If you are one of the nature photographers who want to make a living from this great hobby, the best thing to do is to create an online business. This way, in addition to showing part of your images, you can sell them at any time and to anyone.

When selling nature photography on your website, you can use different strategies to capture the attention of your customers.

  • Public galleries: thanks to the online shop you can upload the photos of your latest trips to the countryside as a nature photographer and have them for sale for anyone who wants to buy fantastic landscape images. Thanks to this option you will be able to offer digital images for sale with download (for a fee) and printing in professional formats (Arcadina Labs).

This way, when a visitor sees a nature photograph they like, they will be able to buy it instantly.

  • Private galleries to offer fully customised services: this can be another very interesting line of business for nature photographers. It consists of offering totally tailor-made landscape or wildlife reportage.

When the client has already hired you, you have made the report and you give them access to their private area to view their digital photos. It will be time to extend the budget by offering a series of extra products. For example: enlargements or professional format prints from Arcadina Labs that you can activate for free and easily.

In addition, on your website you can explain: how they can hire your services as a nature photographer, the services you provide, the places you can travel to, client testimonials, your story and anything else you consider relevant and that will help you sell more landscape images.
