It is already difficult to photograph a lion, but this case was even more difficult.
Unrealistically beautiful, like a magical white lion, became the hero of the photographer of the British photographer Simon Needham. Simon was happy, like a small child, when he managed to get permission to shoot this special white animal.
Moreover, not an albino, but a carrier of the rarest gene mutation.
It is already difficult to photograph a lion, but this case was even more difficult. And that’s why.
The difficulty of the work was that Moy, apparently realizing its uniqueness, is a narcissistic and capricious lion.
This large cat lives in South Africa in the Glenn Harriff Nature Reserve. There nothing threatens him, and even photographers do not bother him.
And you need to get to Leo as close as possible or more, how to get the most profitable angles?
And what can I do, even if photographers are forbidden to leave their cars for shooting, on which only they can move around the reserve?
Simon was lucky: he had replaceable optics, and Moy, like any narcissistic cat, from time to time, as if deliberately took picturesque poses, well, well posed!
Think yourself! Does this work not deserve world recognition? Really good work!
