Photo by Greg du Toit

Ever think you’re a committed photographer, dedicated to your craft? You wake up in the wee hours of the morning, trek your heavy equipment out to remote locations, survive a mosquito bite or two, a cold breeze or three. Well, you may change your tune about your commitment when you read this story. Wildlife photographer Greg du Toit has set the bar, well, beyond the clouds.

While taking photos of lions in Kenya’s Rift Valley, he actually submerged himself in a watering hole for three months. You read that correctly. Three hours a day, seven days a week for THREE months. He got incredible images of lions, warthogs and more…..and a bunch of diseases that nearly killed him. Committed, yes. And maybe in many senses of the word.
