A real risk hobby
Irish Allan Dixon has taken the internet by storm with his selfies with animals. Described as a kind of dr. Doolite for the ability to talk to the animals and get them to let themselves be photographed, the 29-year-old can be seen fraternizing with several animals – except the crocodile, as he himself warns.
“I can spend between five minutes and three hours convincing an animal to take a selfie. It depends on the animal and how safe it feels. What the photos do not show is how much dirt I end up with because I’m on the ground. But the results are worth it, “explained the young photographer.
For those who want to take selfies with animals, Allan gives a suggestion. “They have to be very careful not to upset or tease the animal when they are taking a picture. Gain the confidence of the animal calmly and relaxed and the results will be golden. But do not try to do it with a crocodile, “he concluded.
