"Suzi Eszterhas knew that she wanted to be a wildlife photographer from the time she was a small child. She got her first camera when she was six and proceeded to take pictures of her cats in her backyard, pretending that they were lions on the savanna or tigers in the jungle. In this book, Suzi will talk about her dream, and about how it isn't like what she thought it would be when she was a kid - ie, it's not glamorous and it's a lot of hard work, but still entirely worth it! - She talks about overcoming obstacles in order to get the perfect shot; the continual learning necessary to do what she does; how her work has deepened her love of animals; and her commitment to protecting them. Each chapter highlights one of her adventures and uses that to explore that chapter's topic, culminating with photos of the adventure being discussed. The chapters also illustrate an aspect of Suzi's work and what it is like to be a wildlife photographer. - Includes chapters: My childhood dream; World travels; Prepping for shoots; Living in the field; On Safari; Going undercover; Highs and lows; Do not disturb; Mothers and babies; Rescues and orphans; Working with locals; Working with scientists; Giving back; Ask Suzi: Answers to the questions that Suzi hears most often! - As a whole, the book's big message is (in part) that the relationship Suzi has with wildlife and nature is the one we should all have: do no harm, respect, learn, protect wild spaces and animals, and the critical importance of connecting with animals and nature."--
