These stunning animal portraits were taken by Randal Ford, an Austin-based photographer.
From small birds and baby animals to wild beasts such as a tiger, a bear or a lion; all the models were brought and photographed in Randal’s studio.
‘I create timeless portraits of animals in which I capture a moment that showcases their personality, their form, and their texture. Using classic lighting and simple composition, I’m able to share with my audience a likeness equally as impactful as seeing the animal in person. Whether it be beauty, power, or humor, I allow the individual animal to dictate the story being told.’ Randal states.
