So many times we get caught up in our work as photographers, that we don’t take the time to just get out and shoot for ourselves. I mean taking the day and just go somewhere, shoot, and do it for the reasons that probably got us into this business. Because we love it!

Now I love to shoot and interact with people and this gives me great satisfaction. However, animals hold a special place in my heart as well, but I don’t often get the chance to put myself in a situation to capture them. Sure, there are the occasional shore birds, pet portraits etc. Just not a great variety of animal species. Thats why I love the zoo. Sure, you have a captive audience, but you can still get creative and your subjects are endless.

We are fortunate in this area, because we have two wonderful zoo locations. Asheboro in North Carolina, and Columbia in South Carolina. They are great places to spend the day with your gear. The following photos were taken at both locations. If you are fortunate enough to have a zoo near you, take a day for yourself, grab your kit and enjoy. Its a great smile generator!
