They say   "it's the photographer and not the camera that create the photo"

Yes it is true, but wildlife photography has very unique equipment needs. Wildlife photographers spend hours waiting for the right moment ! You need a right equipment and you must be prepared for that moment ! You also need much more outdoor equipment as a wildlife photographer ! You don't need the latest and the most expensive gear, but it must be good for your needs ! Wildlife Photography is the main focus and I always try using the equipment that works best for me. I am not locked to a newest stuff , but instead I simply use what I find best for the job.  So here is some of my gear, that i use for my work !
