My ongoing series, Patterns, has been some of my favourite work to create — I am autistic and naturally drawn to the beautiful patterns of nature, I have captured the stripes of the zebra, and the unique markings of the giraffe, and next I wanted to capture the beautiful rosettes of the snow leopard, something I have never done before. 

It is not easy to get a tight portrait of these animals, and this young male was full of energy, he rarely stood still for more than a couple of seconds at a time. I spent all of my second encounter with him trying to achieve this photograph and left empty-handed, it was frustrating but I knew it was an opportunity I had to chase.

Late into the third encounter, something caught his eye, and a composition caught mine. The vision became reality, and Rosettes was created.
