Hello. Anyway I could purchase the right to use this photo?

Can we have in print ready as a photo file?
Any chance I could use this for my album cover the title track is White Lion??
Man this is an incredible photo! Do you have a higher resolution of it? I saw I can purchase a canvas print of it, but I would love to have a digital print. Thanks, Steve
HI SPike83,

Your White Lion Photo is amazing. I am launching a health and wellness website in two weeks, featuring and crediting several photographs of wildlife/movement/nature in black and white, would you be interested in having this photo exhibited and credited along with five other artists' work?

If interested, pls respond at giotocca1@hotmail.com, with subject Lion Photograph, its beautiful!

Magnificent! All this negative space and the high contrast makes you focus on the beauty of the lion. Well done! :clap:

I love black and white images.

Do you mind if I use this picture as my avatar? It is amazing to me
Hi, i love this image! I am a designer and owner of a small indi label.. I was wondering if you would give permission to use this as a print?? I would give you the artist full credit for the picture...

Very beautiful photograph with so much power you can feel the calmess of the moment. Very well taken, I like the contrast.
