Beautiful Creatures of Africa
Nick Brandt is literally a one-of-a-kind photographer. Based out of London, this guy makes a living on photographing East Africa's most beautiful and dangerous animals. His unique style and development process has put him in high demand all over the world.
He only shoots in black & white on a medium format negative and has never used digital. That translates to 10 shots per roll of film. Do you know how much more work that is? He also doesn't use a telephoto lens, meaning he gets very, very close to what he is shooting.
As you can see, all of his hard work pays off. His images look as though he walked right up to the beasts and put them in the position he wanted. They are absolutely stunning. Do yourself a favor and check out his whole gallery here. It's well worth it.
