Big 5s

“I love elephants. Not just for their size and scale, but for the empathy, warmth and connection they have with one another.

I recently had the chance to film a project walking alongside herds of elephants in Botswana, working alongside the great UK charity, Tusk. The compassion, personality and depth looking into the eyes of an elephant is really something quite unique and powerful.

Also, there are many challenges of getting up close and personal to elephants in their natural habitat, which adds to the excitement and thrill of getting that perfect shot.

Spending extended amounts of time with elephants, it pains me to think that they are still hunted for ivory and their numbers are still decreasing dramatically.”
