While looking up different photographers, I came across photos from Nick Brandt. Nick Brandt started his own photography project to make a series of books "memorialize the vanishing natural grandeur of East Africa." He focuses solely on photographing Africa, and uses black and white film without telephoto or zoom lenses. He doesn't believe in using telephoto lenses because he feels that being close to the animal helps reveal their personality. He mostly tries to capture animals in their natural state of being. He wants to capture them in their natural state before it is destroyed. Below are a few examples of his photos.
