Namibia – 2019
My predilection when photographing wildlife is to look to emphasis the most dominant characteristic of that animal. With a male silverback gorilla or instance, I want to convey a sense of upper body strength and with a zebra I will play with the stripes. With a cheetah, I could go for speed – which is a little hackneyed or focus on what generates that speed – the legs.
That’s the thing about cheetahs – they really do have an extraordinary shape which is rarely captured on film as the camera is not at ground level. However, if that perspective can be fully achieved, the viewer is left in no doubt that the cheetah is really all legs, with a little head and a little body. No wonder it is the fastest animal on earth.
