Opportunities for photographing exotic wildlife in its natural habitat may be out of reach for a little longer, but in the meantime why not hone your skills closer to home?
This issue’s cover feature will show you how, with a masterclass from pro wildlife photographer Graeme Green.
From technique and kit tips to advice on fieldcraft and clothing, there’ll be something new to learn, whether you're starting out in this genre of photography or are an experienced shooter.
