A few thoughts on the recent comments. The wilderness systems commander is a great choice for photography. I know that this is a very stable kayak and that there is a lot of room in the front end for a tripod.

The rudder idea is a good point. This would come in very handy when approaching skittish wildlife.

Here's my set up. In this photo I had a 300mm F2.8 in the back, in the dry bag.

I own an online kayak (external link) store in the UK and am always on the lookout for good photos for publishing on our website. Does anyone on this forum ever sell their work?

I've never sold any of my kayak photos in particular. I've heard that there is actually a pretty good demand for these types of photos right now. Are you interested in photos of kayaks in different locations?

Which lens did you use? The 70-200? or the 300?

The Coot, and the king fisher was taken will my 70-200mm F4 w/ 2x teleconverter @ F8, The Tern, Osprey, and the Heron was taken with a 400mm F5.6, I was to "chicken" to get the rented 300mm out of the dry bag the day the first photo was taken.

Great thread, Daniel, and advice and photos. I've been wanting to look into a kayak, since I live near Smithville Lake in MO. I'm baffled as to how to even approach getting one, though. Sound like a fairly wide, 12ft, "sit in" would be the way to go. I, too, would love to be able to coast inland and catch wildlife. IM me if you would like to. I have some more questions I'd like to ask you. Thanks!

I must admit that the idea of kayak photography interests me. Have you considered putting a trolling motor on your kayak? That way you wouldn't have to paddle toward the wildlife and would have less chance of scaring them.

I looked into putting a trolling motor on mine but there are times where I have to carry mine a good distance, up stream to where I am going to launch from. The added weight of carrying a battery and the motor just wasn't worth it.

I'm more and more intrigued about kayaking, thanks to you, Daniel! What Kayak is that in your photograph? Also, where near Springfield (I think that's where you're near) do you get to kayak?

This guy spy hopped with the paddler for a couple on minutes. As a parting gift it lifted her boat six inches, set her down and vanished.

I kayak in a Old Town Vapor 12.

There is a lake in Springfield called Lake Springfield that is part of the James River. We have James River, Finley River, and Niangua River within about 30 minutes from where I live. I spend most of my photography time on Lake Springfield. An added benefit of Lake Springfield is that I can access the Springfield Conservation area from my kayak. In the spring I take my kayak far up into the nature center via the creeks. Get's me some weird looks, but I also am able to get to places that the trails don't go.

My favorite Rivers (in Missouri) are North Fork, Jacks Fork, and Current River which are all east of me at least an hour.

This one was taken of wild horses on the current river. Technically out of a canoe, but it's close enough to a kayak right :D
