Lebetina Viper Story

It was a long time – three years ago. I was attending a photojournalism course at the Georgian Institute of Public Affairs.

At that time I’d imagine myself to become anything but a journalist. It was just that I was bored with my sedentary job and quite fond of photography. So I decided to get some professional education in photography.

By the time I enrolled the course I was quite interested in nature photography so no wonder that for the photo essay section I chose to shoot the process of catching of Lebetina Viper for the local zoo.

So here’s my first ever photo story, which was ewwed by some girls in my class.
