This course is for you if…

You’ve seen images you love and think you couldn’t achieve the same results.

You’ve struggled to capture wildlife and get a pro look.

You often take the same pictures as other people and they aren’t interesting.

Think like a pro when shooting wildlife and get the results!

What You’ll Learn

I’ll take you through more than 30 wildlife images I’ve captured around the world and break down exactly how I captured each shot.

This is more than just a technical discussion on settings and lens choices though, as working with animals in the wild comes with its own unique set of problems. 

You’ll learn my tricks for ‘posing’ animals in the wild, how to avoid missing must-have moments, lighting hacks, as well as some key editing processes.


Imagine you could…

Master the techniques and approach for capturing wildlife portraits. Feel confident, inspired, and able to create truly unique photography.

Hear what photographers have to say…

“Seeing how Matt works really makes me feel like I can achieve similar results. He shares insight into his workflow and approach in an in-depth and highly enjoyable way!”
- T.L.

“When I look in Nat Geo or similar magazines I think ‘I could never get that shot’. The way Matt teaches this course completely changed this for me. I don’t know what was holding me back but it’s gone! Thanks, Matt!”
- D.O.

“How amazing for a pro like Matt to talk us through his entire process. This course was incredibly informative but for me ultimately a huge source of inspiration to get out and shoot more!”
- O.C.

"Great wildlife photography isn’t something reserved for the pros. You can capture incredible animal portraits with the gear you currently have as long as you understand these basic technical and strategic concepts."
