Animal portraits

A talented portrait photographer has moved on from capturing traditional human subjects - instead photographing a stunning variety of wild animals.

Brad Wilson, 51, stands just feet away from the likes of tigers, rhinos, elephants and primates. Each animal is given the same respect and dignity as any human subject, with Brad setting up a full photographic studio, either at or near sanctuaries and zoos across the U.S.

The works are the second part of Brad's Affinity series, which the photographer - based in Los Angeles, California, first started working on in 2010. (Caters News)
