While shooting pictures for our new book on lions (www.africanlions.co.za) at Tswalu Kalahari Game Reserve (www.tswalu.com) we found some lions patrolling the fence line. We placed our GoPro action camera in their path hoping to catch some good footage of them as they came past. Little did we know that one lioness would take a liking to the camera and cart it off into the bush! We got the camera back, thank heavens and some interesting footage to boot!
The book we are photographing and writing is a large format book with masses of information about lions, their cultural significance and how they figured in the lives of the early hunters. We also look at the conservation issues and scenarios for their survival. There are, however many that can’t afford to buy books and as a result don’t have access to the information in them. We want to try to address that and to this end we wold like to produce a children’s version of the book to give away free of charge to underprivileged children. This costs money and so we are searching for a sponsor for the children’s books. If you or any one you know would be interested in being involved please contact us.
