In 1998, I started photographing in the field where I learned the benefits of patience, waiting for the right moment, and understanding animal behaviour. My artistic and creative sense came alive and I developed a passion for capturing these rare and wonderful animals. I have always believed that images are an influential tool that can change people's mindsets. We as photographers have the ability to create images and art that will educate people about Africa’s wonderful diversity.
Yet, I have had the great fortune to meet thousands of people from all over the globe who share my love of photography and Africa. I hope my images can create awareness around our precious, yet fragile wildlife treasures.
