Wading In: Photography from the Water

Going back through our videos on Youtube, I just realized this one never got posted to our website.  In my area this time of year I find myself breaking out the waders and photographing a lot in and around the water.

“I spend a lot of time in the water wading after shots, both in fresh and saltwater, so much so that I often joke I don’t know how to work a camera unless I am wet. Wading provides unique opportunities to approach wildlife or capture scenes that you simply can’t get from dry land. However, it can also be difficult and dangerous, but with education and preparation, you can keep yourself and your gear safe, while getting some amazing photo opportunities.”
