A critically endangered Black Rhino bull shows his dominance by kicking up dust and assuming a challenging pose. With more than 550 rhinos brutally poached in Southern Africa in 2013 alone (more than 2000 killed since 2010) the future is looking bleak for these behemoths, all because of flawed beliefs of the medicinal properties of their horns. Rhino horn IS NOT MEDICINE! More info on www.stoprhinopoaching.com

I have always been amazed by the natural beauty in the landscape, wildlife and bird-life of Southern Africa. Picking up a camera has just enhanced that appreciation and pushed me to further explore the wild places left in my native homeland. Join me on my website/blog, on Facebook and on 500px as I share my experiences with you!
An Industrial Engineer by profession, and an accomplished artist across many genres, from music to poetry, I have always enjoyed whatever allows me to express my creativity to the fullest. Photography turned out to be the perfect 'marriage' between my engineering brain and artistic soul. Showing off God's glorious creation is something I enjoy immensely.
