Never work with animals or children. Unless you can give the animals some moody lighting, in which case sign them up and allow them to blow you away.
These incredible images are from photographer Boza Ivanovic's new book, Out of the Wild: Zoo Portraits. Ivanovic sought to take the cages and glass out of the world of the zoo, allowing the viewer to focus on the awesome animals these institutions look to preserve.
We're now seeking out Ivanovic to capture the next ShortList Christmas Party - we're keen to work with any photographer capable of making a zebra look more majestic than the average human being.
