BBC's Wildlife Photographer of the Year

Wildlife Photographer of the Year

I always wanted to be a wildlife photographer, roaming the exotic wilderness and searching for rare and unheard of creatures. Then I watched the segments after the credits on Planet Earth, in which the very same wildlife photographers freeze their asses off in the Gobi and sit in wet, disgusting jungles for weeks on end (specifically, I'm talking about the bactrian camel hunt and the one at the end of the birds of paradise episode, which I can't find online). This article further confirms my reservations: "Ten long months spent stalking the rare and elusive snow leopard in temperatures as low as -40ÂșC paid off for a dogged photographer."
