Meet the Locals

Flash Parker, a photographer and AFAR Ambassador, has a remarkable ability to capture images of locals. In this case, we are talking about four-legged residents and the occasional winged one as well. We gave Flash the new Tamron 16-300mm All-In-One Zoom lens and asked him to share his experiences photographing wildlife. Whether you are headed on an African safari, to a Western ranch, or simply a big-city park, Flash’s tips will assure that you also return with some wild images.

I find it incredible just how much room for artistic expression I have when shooting with the new Tamron 16-300mm all-in-one zoom. I can shoot exceptionally wide panoramas one minute, classic portraits the next, and even wild moments if I happen...
