Snapper Laurent Baheux has collected the dramatic images in a new book which portrays the feline animal in all its glory.

The lions, which are on the endangered list, are captured in all their powerful glory, showing off both their physical power as well as their more tender moments as they play with their cubs.

Many of the images have the feel of a studio portrait as the breathtaking images show the animals up close with their fine details on display.

Baheux believes his lion photography s as much a tribute to the lion’s character, power, and feeling as it is a haunting reminder that this most impressive of animals is also among the most endangered wildlife on earth.

He says he hopes to capture the character of each animal as an individual.


Baheux is also actively involved with a number of environmental organisations, including the World Wildlife Fund and the Jane Goodall Institute.

In 2013, he served as a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) in the Wild & Precious campaign against poaching.
