AFRICA.... what an incredible experience on so many levels! This collection is something so different to anything I’ve done before and I’m very excited to share it. I was within 3 meters of this lion when I shot this image (below). It was early in the morning and the whole pride was on the move looking for their next meal, as it had been 3 days since the last kill. As we approached, my guide said told me not to make any sudden movements. He stopped the open-top vehicle right alongside this beautiful majestic male and I was in absolute awe! My heart was racing as he fixed his sight right on me. I hid behind the lens trying not to make eye contact. My adrenaline was intense and his gaze was fearless.
