This is as close as I would ever want to get to a lion. Although I am protected, because the manmade hole that I am shooting through is the size of a camera lens not his head, my heart wouldn't cope with anything less than three feet between me and him. This picture was only possible with my partner Kevin Richardson - his understanding of lion behaviour is second to none, but most of all we trust each other.; Much of my approach here is down to simple mathematics and understanding of lenses and depth of field. The fast Nikon 85mm has fabulous optical quality - it is the best portrait lens that I have ever owned - so that was my choice.
