Never work with children or animals...

Here's a brief behind the scenes video of National Geographic photographer Joel Sartore working on his epic project 'Rare'. His mission is to document as many of the 6,000 species of captive animals in American zoos as he can, in particular endangered breeds, and has so far photographed over 1,800 different species in zoos and aquariums across the United States of America.

As you will see, trying to take great photos of animals with complicated lighting setups is far from easy!
