i took this a few years ago for a newspaper , i was sent to a circus to photograph a woman who had run away to the circus to be come a bear trainer,One of these jobs that was really interesting to do , but was a tad “o bollocks why me ” a few times, Had to sit with my back to the fence , not motor drive , manual trigger only , speak very quite , no sudden movement once sitting down …and they then lock the only door out ..then she let in the four bears who looked a lot bigger then they did early , as you can see there are only two in the picture , guess where the other two are ,yip walking around with one eye on me ,thankful i got what i wanted quickly , the bears went up they tunnel and the door shut behind them… don’t think health and safety would allow it now a days …
