One of my all time favorite photographers. Nick Brandt's photographs are what I aspire to - the perfect combination of black and white film, and wildlife. Even though it is really difficult to make a career as a photographer shooting film, I would prefer it. I want to be a wildlife photographer and I am inspired by his capability to combine classic film and wildlife in such a successful way. His compositions are stunning. If I could make a living doing what he does, I would be the happiest person in the world. These photographs were taken in Eastern Africa between 2000-2007. These are the best animal portraits I have come across. To see more of his work or get a look at his book go to http://www.nickbrandt.com/popup.html.
