It’s all about patience when taking great photos. Photographer Edwin Kats takes time to know his subjects first to earn their trust.
"A thing I learned along the way is that you can get great results by sticking to just one subject for a long time. Try to get to know your subject and follow it through the seasons. Try to get them in the snow, against autumn colors and with a nice back-light on a sunny summer morning. Another advantage is that the animals, even the very shy ones, will get to know and trust you. The best possible feeling I can get is to be accepted and trusted by a wild animal - lions, hippos and elephants not included, of course.” (See the article.)
