Simon Needham is a humanitarian and wildlife photographer. He takes pictures of white lions to show the world the beauty of this rare color mutation of the lion.
“He was so close to the lions that even though he was technically safe, he was still very scary,” Simon told.
“But safety is always my first priority. Although whenever I am very close to a lion I feel like I am in danger, I always take precautions to ensure that I am truly safe. A lion is almost 8 times stronger than a man, and just by being in the presence of a lion, I can feel the power they have. “
We admire Simon’s bravery in facing danger head-on. And we invite you to take a look at 10 of his incredible photos.
Would you be able to get close to wild animals if you were a photographer?
