Now, how do you get to take photos of a Lion without getting eaten or by using a massive 800mm super telephoto zoom lens? You use a remote control car with a camera attached of course, cutely named Beetlecam.
Will Burrard-Lucas and his brother Matt came up with this great idea and have undertaken several trips to Africa to take photos of Lions, elephants, buffalos, you name it!
OK, that got your attention! I expect it's the dream of many to quit the nine to five, travel the world, and take some pretty amazing photographs along the way. Not many people can or actually do turn this dream into reality.
Elijah Soloman however, is somebody who did actually do this.
There's an exhibition of photographs of Captain Scott's ill fated Antarctic expedition running at the Chris Beetles Fine Photographs Gallery in London.
Taken by Scott's expedition camera artist - Herbert Ponting - it's a collection of some 60 breathtaking photographs. This is well worth a visit if you're in London, and even if you're not, you can still grab a look on the gallery website.
