Get ready to turn your average animal snapshots into sharp, beautifully composed wildlife photos you’re thrilled with

Wildlife photography demands a different set of skills to any other type of photography.

To shoot incredible wildlife photos you must know how to deal with…

And you need to know how to react quickly and choose the right settings to capture those brief magical moments.

This takes special craft skills and an acute understanding of animal behaviour.

Unfortunately, most wildlife-loving photographers end up disappointed with their shots because, until now, they’ve never been shown the right way to capture stunning sharp shots of animals.

Hi, I’m Rachel your iPhotography Wildlife Course instructor! 

Since 2007 I have been photographing domestic and wild animals all over the world.

Having spent copious hours on Kenya’s savannahs capturing wildlife at its rawest, I’ve led photographic safaris in East Africa’s most magnificent wildlife hotspots and run workshops in the UK.

I love to help amateur photographers create stunning images of wild animals that are worth sharing.

Through wildlife photography I feel we can make a real difference in conservation and inspire others to care more about our natural world.

I look forward to you joining me on this wild adventure!
