Between an elephant and a girl

Since two years I had the idea to photograph with a model and an elephant. I had to wait for the time that the abilities to do so came into my sight. This time in Nepal I traveled south to find an elephant that made it possible to stay calm and especially responded positively on the flash that I used for exposing the photographs. 

Thanks for this go out especially to model Suzeena Shahi and my partner and lighting assistant Samjhana Bishankhe, Elephant Caretaker 'Ganesh', our local contact Manoj Ghimire who arranged this possibility. 

Without all of them this shoot wouldn't have been possible.
