The 3-minute video above is a behind-the-scenes look at Schmid’s journey. “For photography I’ve used a lot the a99 coupled with the 500mm and the 70-200mm,” Schmid tells PetaPixel. “When I’m on site, I would prefer to stay far away from the animal and use a telephoto lens to have a natural feel to the images. If it wants to get closer, that’s great, but I would never force the...
