There’s nothing that quite compares to taking a walk on the wild side… and I literally mean “the wild side”.
I’ve had some pretty interesting shoots as a model over the past seven years but working with wild animals always tops the list. Riding Zebra’s, racing cheetahs, catching the breeze with eagles, walking with elephants and hanging out with Lions.
There’s a level of respect that you develop and knowledge that you gain when working in such close proximity to such powerful creatures and you realise how volatile our world truly is and the importance of preserving what and who we’ve been blessed with to share our incredible planet.
We tend to take a lot of things in our life for granted and it’s for that very reason that I have always kept a gratitude diary where every couple of days or so I write down a few things that I am grateful for. Be it the dinner my mother prepared for me or the fact that I have running water when I turn on the taps.
A grateful heart is a magnet for miracles.
