Lions - The Kings and Queens of Africa

There are very few animals on the planet that have the aura of lions. Photographing Africa’s big cats must surely rank as any photographers dream. I have been very fortunate to spend countless hours in the presence of lions. Enjoy my portfolio on the King and Queens of Africa.
