What Is The Journal of Wildlife Photography?

The Journal of Wildlife Photography is a community where wildlife photographers can share their knowledge and learn from an abundance of available educational resources created by professional wildlife photographers.  This includes wildlife photography courses, eBooks, articles, photo contests, and a quarterly digital magazine that contains in-depth articles covering every aspect of wildlife photography.  It is one of the best communities to be a member of for aspiring wildlife photographers wanting to learn how to produce powerful award-winning photographs.

I have been a subscriber to the Journal of Wildlife Photography’s digital magazine since 2019.  During that time, I have learned so much from the professionals who contribute articles to the Journal based on their combined decades of experience in the field.  The articles and eBooks are especially informative on topics such as mastering light and auto-focus systems as examples.

The 31,000 plus members in their Facebook community are constantly sharing images and are very engaging and helpful at answering any questions that arise.  When I review my images from 2019 to now it’s obvious to me how my images have improved and that is partly due to the learning I have acquired from being a member of the Journal of Wildlife Photography.

The Journal has really helped me to gain an appreciation for the need to focus on storytelling.  Whether that be for the purpose of portraying an animal’s behavior, habitat, or the need for conservation, these are variables that I am now thinking about as I plan my trips and approach a scene.

This truly is one of the best ways I have found to learn wildlife photography and improve the quality of my images.  Best of all, the annual subscription is just $97.
