A good part of wildlife photography has to do with being in the right place at the right time. Whether it’s from an educated hypothesis or random luck, photographer, David Lazar, sure has timing on his side. Though Lazar is based in Australia, the photographer takes yearly trips to various parts of the world to photograph culture. On a recent trip to Masai Mara in Kenya, Africa, Lazar came across a pride of lions and took the photograph below:
Looking through Lazar’s collection of images from this and other trips, you begin to appreciate just how much good photographs can tell a story. Lazar credits his good timing to patience and offers this advice:
“Be prepared to be patient and spend a long time with animals, waiting for them to do something that will create a more interesting photo. A lot of tourists who go on safari in East Africa see an animal for a few minutes, and then are happy to move on to look for another. But the longer you stay an animal, the more comfortable it will be with your presence and you can capture some interesting and emotive shots.”
