Giraffe are notoriously tricky to photograph due to their odd size and shape — you either have to be far away or very close, and they are spooked easily. They test your resolve and patience more than any other creature, and push your imagination up a gear.
I thrive in the field when I’m working under self imposed pressure; I am my biggest critic and I knew I could do better when it came to giraffes. I went into this shoot with the pressure and imagination cranked up a hear, and I think it paid off.
Sometimes less is more, and this new giraffe image proves that — it is probably my strongest photograph of the species, and definitely my favourite.
