It is always said- “A picture can speak a thousand words.” History has witnessed the power of the camera. The photographers around the world capture from their lens with a whole new perspective thus presenting a whole new world.
One such sub-branch known as wildlife photography is quite popular among the youths today. But many think of wildlife photography as just a passion and not a profession.
But today a widely followed passion such as Wildlife Photography has immense possibilities as a career option as well. And to talk about them today we have one of the finest wildlife photographers in the country, Chintan Jain.
Chintan sheds light on the following topic by saying that if someone wants to enter this field make sure you have an immense interest in capturing nature and wildlife. Sometimes you have to wait hours and hours for the perfect shot and sometimes you even have to return without anything, therefore One needs to have strong willpower and dedication.
Now coming to the monetary perspective, Chintan says that days are gone when people would only roam around with a camera for just a hobby. With time people have realised that wildlife photography is a work of art, therefore this has also paved the way for earning monetary opportunities for wildlife photographers.
One way is through organizing exhibitions of their exquisite photos which people can buy. The second one is the most popular one by working for wildlife and infotainment channels such as Discovery, National Geographic, etc.
They pay a reasonable amount of money but you have to work harder as well. The third one which is becoming popular is through selling digital prints.
Earlier photographers used to put up their digital prints on their website or they would earn using sync-licensing.
But now with the introduction of NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens) the demand and scope of wildlife photography have increased by miles.
Therefore if you have a knack to follow your passion, then go for it and rest is assured that if you work hard then everything is achievable.
