On the Move - Indian Tiger in Ranthambore National Park

Tiger on the Move is the first short from our recent trip to Ranthambore National Park, where we capture the majestic Bengal Tiger with the Sony A7SIII It was a very special trip as it was the first time in 8 months that we left home. Due to Covid, the park was very empty and we had the chance to enjoy unique moments with India's wildlife, many times in absolute isolation. On our second day, we went to Zone 3 of the park. One of the most idyllic areas in Ranthambore. And we were extremely lucky to see this gorgeous youngster going for a morning kill, sneaking onto a group of nearby spotted deers. Unfortunately for her this time the result was negative (by the way as most of the times). Very special thanks to Angela for being a great companion and very patient with my continued "filming, please don't move", to Hemraj Meena our guide and Ranthomber Hemraj our driver, as well as to Ravindra Jain and his entire team of Sawai Vilas for being a great host.

The Gate Keeper | Bengal Tigers in Ranthambore National Park | Filmed on the Sony A7S3

Second short from our trip to Ranthambore National Park. On our last two days, we went to Zone 6 of the park. A great area despite that you actually have to drive through the Ranthambore village, which is quite a mess and extremely dirty. But then you enter this idyllic zone through one of the ancient city gates. Being it the afternoon drive, and following the instinct of our guide, we checked the walkway of the gate. "Tigers tend to rest here in the afternoon sun. And it's a good spot-out place for them", he said while reaching our destination. And he was spot on. A tigress with one of his male cubs was lying on the balustrade. We almost spend two hours observing them and getting this great footage. Very special thanks again to Angela for being a great companion and very patient with my continued "filming, please don't move", to Hemraj Meena our guide and Ranthomber Hemraj our driver, as well as to Ravindra Jain and his entire team of Sawai Vilas for being a great host.

The Crab Hunter - Indian Mongoose in Ranthambore National Park

Third short film from our trip to Ranthambore National Park in 2020 Our first time in Zone 2 of the park, and it did not disappoint. Nearly to the end of the game drive we spotted an Indian mongoose carefully looking between rocks and on the floor in what seemed to be a dry river bed. And to our absolute surprise, it was actually looking for carbs and also managed to catch one crab, hence becoming the Ranthambore Crab Hunter. Thank god I still had my Sony somehow rigged up, so I managed to quickly get into position and capture this sequence. One more time thanks to Angela for being there with me, to Hemraj Meena our guide and to Ranthomber Hemraj, our driver. And a special thanks to all of them for being very patient with my continued "filming, please don't move" And of course to Ravindra Jain and his entire team of Sawai Vilas for taking so good care of us.

Tanzania Wildlife Safari | A Wildlife Film by Alex F Buchholz

4K Version of my Tanzania film. Best moments of our last Wildlife Photography trip to Tanzania, and my very first full wildlife video. (So apologies if the editing and colour grading is not yet perfect, and every well-meant comment is highly appreciated) This time we stayed in the Tarangire National Park, famous for its lush vegetation and the big elephant herds. And after a more laidback experience, we headed to the Ndutu Conservation Area, where we witnessed and experienced first hand the magic of the great migration. The frenetic action of hundred thousand of wildebeest, zebras and gazelle, with all mayor African predators as first row spectators and actors as well. Special thanks to Angela for being a great companion and the best scouter possible, to Frank Gabriel, our great guide, who made many of the shots possible, to Tom Schovsbo for organising this stunning trip, and to Lemala Camps for being incredible hosts. Most footage was taken with the Nikon D850, the camera that I also used mainly for my wildlife photography in Tanzania along with the Canon 1Dx Mark II. In addition, I used the Canon EOS R for B-Role as well as the DJI OSMO Pocket for stabilised sequences.
