Photographer Teaches Us How To Take The Best Animal Selfies

This amazing Irish photographer teaches us how to take the best animal selfies after completely mastering the art of capturing beautiful animals in stunning photos.

Allan Dixon, talented Irish photographer, started adventuring around Australia for a few months. While documenting his travel, he decided to start taking selfies with local animals, and the results are out of this world.

If you’ll follow his Instagram feed, you’ll start noticing that none of your ‘human selfies’ could ever compare to these awesome photos with kangaroos, quokkas, goats, and camels. ‘You have to be still, lie down, gain their trust in their environment for a while’, he says. ‘Most of the time they’re more scared of you than you are of them’.

Also, another useful trick is to show up directly with the camera so it will appear that your device is part of your body.

‘There’s a fine line between curiosity and survival. The main aim is to make them know that they are safe being around you’, he added. So that’s how you take the Best Animal Selfies. Simple enough, right?

Remember, always brush your teeth! Keep those pearly whites pearly white. #selfie #camel #DaxonsAnimalSelfies

Merry Christmas!! I wanted to say thank you all so much for your kind messages and comments over the last few days. I’ve tried to read over them all and will take the time to respond to most of the questions that people have asked over the next few days. I’m here down in Australia for Christmas and this quokka wishes you an AWESOME Christmas! Some people have asked how did I manage to make this into a lifestyle or a job if you will. A lot of my travel is done with the aim of helping or collaborating on a project in content marketing. It was all a slow process of figuring out how to help people in showing off the best qualities of a location or experience. I would then share this for free to the people that needed it, until I could start making a wage for the help I provided them. While focusing on that I was talking selfies with animals for the last two and a half years until someone noticed, and then shared the collection. In essence anyone can do anything if they put their mind to it. But it takes time and consistent hard work with many ups and downs to make it. On the bright side you’ll enjoy the time spent doing what you love to do and wake up excited each and everyday to do it. So now, it’s time to start doing what you love to do. Start off small and reach out to try help people that do what you love to do. #merrychristmas #Christmas #selfie #animalselfie #DaxonsAnimalSelfies #Perth #perthlife #animalsco #bestanimal #westernaustralia #thisisWA #rottnestisland #rottnest #lovemyrotto #quokka #quokkas #quokkaselfie #igcutest_animals
