Big 5s

 “My favourite animal is the elephant. I love to photograph them. You can never get bored of capturing them.

The reason I find them so fascinating it because they look like they have almost human emotions, such as when they’re looking after baby elephants, like responsible parents. They are very protective about their herds. Most of the time they move around as a herd. If they have kids, then it will be much more of a big group. Young calves’ moments of play are cute. I also like to see big alpha male Tuskers play and bull fight.

Watching elephants closely, you can see different emotions. Every time you’re out there with them, watching them and photographing them, they surprise you.”
