Can you find him in disguise in these forest snaps?

The photographer with a worldwide following says planning is key and it sometimes takes half a year to prepare for a shoot.
It can take months of preparation to sasan to set up and find the right shot.
He said: ‘Planning is key, try to get as much information as possible and stay flexible and easy if something isn’t going to be planned.
“So there are two main rules, don’t bother the animals, and secondly, don’t get into too dangerous situations. No signal, no Wi-Fi, no internet and sometimes without electricity and water are facts that you should always take into account before making risky decisions.
Take your time and don’t stress. Wild animals are not something you can get easily and especially not from a close distance. The worst thing if you don’t succeed on a wildlife trip is that you spend time in nature, which is beneficial to me.
‘Respect the animals and plants and don’t let it go to waste where it doesn’t belong, please.
‘I take the photos with my camera and a drone. I use drones for places that are difficult to pass through or very dangerous and to get an idea of the entire environment that I am walking and exploring.
“In many situations, a good professional drone can also replace a helicopter ride for catches and is much faster and cheaper.”
Sasan, pictured here in session, has remained true to his craft for 18 years since discovering his passion for photography at age nine.
