Amboseli, Kenya - 2019
Tim - the world's most famous and largest elephant - is an icon of our times. Like any icon, whether they be a politician, sports star or film star, there is pressure on the photographer to do justice to the subject in a portrait. Often these encounters fall down as the cameraman simply stands on the shoulders of the icon and does not impose himself on the situation. With Tim, I cannot have him passive - he must be ears flapping, dust flying; and coming towards me. That is easier said than done, but if we put in the hours with the right local team, it is possible.
I think that this portrait of Tim does justice to his magnificence.
