Wait for it. That’s the mantra whispered through the regulators of countless underwater photographers.

Patience is a virtue required by all wildlife photographers—whether you’re waiting for hours for mandarinfish to mate with a “kiss” or stuck on a frozen Romanian plain waiting for the perfect bison image.

The latter is the subject of a short film called “The Wait,” which follows up-and-coming wildlife photographer Michel D’Oultremont. Looking at Michel’s images, the talent of this 22-year-old is apparent, but it’s his patience and work ethic that’s truly inspiring.

“When challenges accumulate, they shouldn’t hold you back—they should be extra motivation,” D’Oultrement says in the short film.

The challenges certainly amount as Michel waits for weeks in a hide to finally capture the bison in its most natural state. If you’re looking for a little inspiration to improve your underwater or wildlife photography, a viewing of Michel’s images and this documentary are certainly in order.
