Interview with a wild life photographer


Mark Did you always want to be a wildlife photographer?

Maria To be honest I never planned it as a career. I was a marine biologist when I started taking photographs.

Mark What do you enjoy most about your job?

Maria Well, I love photographing unusual or endangered animals. At the moment I am planning to photograph pandas in China.

Mark What is the most remote* place you have been to?

Maria Last year I went to Antarctica. It took several days to get there.

Mark Have you had any dangerous experiences?

Maria Once in Africa I was in my jeep when a huge elephant charged towards me.

Mark What did you do?

Maria Well, there was no chance of escape, so I just took a picture. Fortunately, at the last moment the elephant stopped and disappeared into the bush.

Mark What advice would you offer to young wildlife photographers?

Maria Don't take unnecessary risks and try to be patient. It can sometimes take days to get the right picture.
