How to quit your day job and become a nature photographer ...

KATELAN CUNNINGHAM, BRIT + CO:

"Your favorite nature photographers likely aren’t on assignment for National Geographic. But they are likely on this other thing we call Instagram. Whether you’re snapping pics on an iPhone or a Canon DSLR, if you learn about light and composition, you’ll not only improve your general photo skills, but you’ll start finding natural beauty no matter where you live or travel.

"This week, in our How to Quit Your Day Job series, we’re talking to two stellar photographers who are making a name for themselves with drop-dead gorgeous pics of nature — but don’t just call them nature photographers. Both Laura E. Pritchett and Ben Giesbrecht are testaments to self-taught skills and major photo chops which aren’t exclusive to nature photography, but they certainly have an eye for capturing all of the oohs and ahhs of Mother Nature."
