Go Behind The Scenes With Brad Wilson As He Creates Incredible Portraits Of Live Animals

Brad Wilson, a commercial and fine art photographer who splits his time between New Mexico and New York, recently released this video of him shooting exotic animals in a studio. Take a look at how Brad works with giraffes, elephants, alligators and more to create breahttaking studio portraits of animals that are never seen in this environment. To be honest, the fact that Brad has the guts to get six inches from some of these huge cats to take their picture with studio lighting is just incredible.

If you've got a few minutes to kill, check out Brad's website, which is chock-full of incredible work.

gorgeous work. I've always aspired to do work like this.

as gorgeous as this is, does anybody think this plays some part in photographers getting killed by wild animals? a la the guy who recently got mauled by a bear. brad makes an interesting point that these animals are only "trained" in the sense that they shouldn't attack you... and they still sometimes do.

I swear I've seen this on here before.. can't seem to find it however.

Absolutely fantastic work. I hope I might have the chance some day to do something like that as well.
