“We talk a lot about impact in an image, and often that impact comes through the expression of emotion,” explains Dooley. “In order to affect viewers emotionally, you have to understand that they are seeing things through a human lens. Good wildlife photography often portrays animals in ways that we can attribute human emotions to them—for example, an expression on the animal that human viewers perceive as a smile or a sad look. That may not be what the animal is actually feeling, but those expressions mean different things to us. When you can put that emotional angle together with a well-composed, technically strong capture, you’ll have a winning image.”
Kevin Dooley’s wildlife images combine his credentials as a certified wildlife guide with his expertise as a master photographer, teaching people not only how to photograph wildlife but also about the animals themselves. “The most important thing about wildlife photography is to learn to anticipate nature and what nature is going to do. If you can learn that skill, it will not only enhance your photographs, it will make the entire journey worthwhile.” Today, Dooley does 12 photo safaris a year, eight in Africa and the others spread around the world.
