I am a wildlife and landscape photographer based in Johannesburg, South Africa. Born with a passion for the outdoors, I travel through Africa photographing the events and nuances of the natural world. Evoking an emotion through photographic art stems from a life-long passion for nature. Capturing the unique beauty of a location and it’s wildlife or landscape motivates me to invest as much time as I do out in the wilderness, focussing on nothing more than to potentially create a photograph with enough emotion and visual drama to tell a story; to justify to the viewer the immense beauty of that experience. The photographs on this website portray my passion for this, in a way that is both creative and natural, sometimes pushing the boundaries to obtain that unique perspective on our natural world. I photograph nature in its purest form because I love it, and I love to share my work with people who appreciate it.
