Wildlife artist David N. Kitler strives to keep his art fresh by breaking up the standard composition—working with multiple images and views of his subject. Here are some of his tips on how to avoid clichéd wildlife art.

1. Don't always opt for the cute or marketable subject.
2. Travel to where your subject is. Experience its environment.
3. Take time to observe and learn about your subject.
4. Gather information with field observations and sketches. Keep a journal.
5. Offer the world something not already rendered a thousand times before.
