David Yarrow’s image of a silverback gorilla is just one of the stunning pictures to feature in his new book. He said of this photograph: ‘Finding a silverback gorilla high up in the volcanoes in Rwanda in a position offering a sense of place and a wider narrative, is a tough ask. I left most of my gear with the porters and took just one camera and my trusted 58mm lens’[/caption]

The monograph, titled David Yarrow, features 150 famous and iconic works and the incredible stories behind how they were shot.

It also contains a foreword written by global NFL star Tom Brady and an afterword by former supermodel Cindy Crawford.

Yarrow – who has dated actress Liz Hurley and television presenter Anthea Turner – said he has a “few time-honoured rules” when photographing in the wild – “stay low, get close and work against the light”.

But he said he added one more rule after shooting a picture of a tiger in India – “stay calm”.

He explained: “In front of a cave in Rajasthan sat a tiger in the best lit spot I can ever remember with any animal.

“When we arrived I remember saying to everyone: ‘stay calm’.

“It was  time to take a deep breath and think . the tiger was going nowhere as long as we kept our cool and went to work.

“I think we just about stayed calm and so did the tiger. You work for moments like these.”
