One of my favorite books was a National Geographic "coffee table" book that had the back stories of all the amazing photos in it. It takes being prepared, persistence, extreme patience (like Sean Penn's character in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty), just dumb luck sometimes, and taking LOTS of photos.
Lots of respect and admiration for photographers who make their living this way.
Some photographers are cryophilic too!!
- preferring or thriving at low temperatures.
