“There is a unique place in the world where the tigers live in a magical setting, called Ranthambore, once a forest reserve of the Maharajas of Jaipur, which 1000 years ago built a fortress perched on a cliff. Overlooking the jungle, in these very game-filled areas, on the banks of the lakes, the lords had built small palaces for their leisure.
Nowadays, these places remain almost intact and the protection has allowed the tigers to multiply. So what a pleasure to photograph in such a case the sublime felines. In knowing their lives, their own stories with the struggles of territories, families, dramas, … and joys, … enter the life of the tigers simply.
Try to get the photo in the perfect setting, try to grab the actions, follow the tiger hunts, attend meals, wish to have the beautiful light, the morning, or have the chance to witness tender moments between the little ones and the mother. Of course there must be some luck, but above all a lot of time and patience. Because often in the tiger world, everything is just a matter of a moment.”
