    Default Big cats turn on the feline flair for daring photo shoot


    A new book, called Big Cat Studio, showcases lions, tigers, leopards and more photographed against a white background in a studio, giving these images a candid and intimate feel



    Photographed in a specially constructed studio at The Institute of Greatly Endangered and Rare Species (T.I.G.E.R.S) in South Carolina, the pictures were taken during 24 sessions over one year



    "The key to producing photographs as intimate as these was the close attention and skill of the cat handlers here at T.I.G.E.R.S in Myrtle Beach," said Dr Bhagavan 'Doc' Antle, the group founder and director. "These cats have been with my dedicated team since birth and their intuitive knowledge of their behaviour was essential to the photographic shoot"



    With part of the proceeds from the book going to help the conservation work Doc does in preventing the decline in population of big cats, Big Cat Studio has a serious side too

    Toltec, a seven-month-old male Ocelot


    Aslan, 14-year-old male Lion



    Chance, three-year-old male leopard



    Parvati, a three-year-old female Lynx



    Radha, a two-month-old female Golden Tabby Tiger



    Bija, a two-year-old female Black Leopard



    Chant and Sloka, six-week-old Leopard cubs

    Tyra, a seven-week-old female Bengal Tiger



    Jannaki, a two-year-old female Standard Royal Bengal Tiger



    Muktan, a two-year-old male Golden Tabby Bengal Tiger, one of only 30 left in the world

    Very beautiful, but I'd much rather see them in their natural habitat.

    The studio is located on the reserve where they live. That's the place I went and got to hold all those baby tigers adn other animals. They didn't cart them off to a photography studio, they brought the white studio backdrop to them.

    That Golden Tabby tiger is just gorgeous. All of them are beautiful, but he just takes the cake.

    Stunning photos and what beautiful animals. It's hard to choose a favorite from these guys. The Tabby Tigers are fabulous - I've never seen one before. And with only 30 left in the world, we might not see too many of these cats. Wow.

    The big goofy lion cub is hands down my favourite.
