Photographer Captures Surreal Portraits With Real Animals

1415

27-year-old Katerina Plotnikova is a Russian photographer with some serious talent. Her portraits with real animals are so incredible they are easily blown off as photoshopped. In reality, all of her pictures are 100% real with no Photoshop whatsoever. Plotnikova’s models are really posing with a host of incredible animals typically reserved to the wild.

Hanging out naked on a large tiger, snakes draped over your face, an owl perched atop your shoulder, or getting a literal ‘bear hug'; you can consider yourself normal if any or all of these scenarios make you feel a little nervous. But Plotnikova’s models don’t bat a lash, they just keep calm and model on!

Plotnikova relies on professionally trained animals and their trainers to successfully pull off these seemingly dangerous photo shoots. With the right training tactics just off camera, Plotnikova can capture the true beauty of the mystical wonderland world we live in.

You have to see Plotnikova’s portraits with real animals to appreciate just how wild and beautiful they truly are. Sit back, relax and enjoy!
