A Week of Wildlife Photography

By Frontiergap @FrontierGap

This week’s blog theme is wildlife photography. For many, including several of us here at Frontier HQ, becoming a wildlife photographer would be a dream job. Anything that incorporates travel and wildlife is right up our street. So we thought we’d dedicate a week to this beautiful and inspirational art-form. Besides giving you some tips on how, where and what to do to get the best shots from our very own wildlife photographer Kelsey Finch, we’ll also be profiling some of our favourite artists all week. Kicking things off strongly, today we spoke to Bridgena, a highly regarded and widely acclaimed South African photographer.
