Placing a well positioned remote camera with a wide angle lens allows for unique and intimate images. It is as if the rhino is walking out of the frame.
This shot was a big moment for me. This was my first real success with remotes and has always reminded me that it’s worth going for the low percentage opportunities, because the rewards are so much greater when you do pull it off. Seeing the three dimensionality for the first time made it clear to me that photographing dangerous wildlife with wide angle lenses from intimate viewpoints was the way forward.
