Walk on the “Wild Side”: Joys of Wildlife Photography

Taken at sunset in the Okavango Delta in Botswana, Africa with a Nikon D3 body and 600 mm f4 AFS VR lens at 3200 ISO. This lioness is lunging across the water to take away a kill that was just made by a pack of wild dogs.

Sierra Photo NYC, a committee of the the New York City chapter of the Sierra Club is excited to announce this presentation by Miami Zoo director and Nikon Ambassador Ron Magill.

From your local zoo to the peak of Mount Kilimanjaro, Ron Magill will show you how to get the best out of wildlife photography while having the time of your life! Whether photographing polar bears in the sub-freezing temperatures of the Arctic, lions on the scorching plains of the Serengeti, or butterflies in his own backyard, Ron’s work has captured wildlife in a way that has inspired people around the world. Ron will show you how to get the most out of what you have, while learning that wildlife photography can be enjoyed by anyone with a yearning for adventure.
