My passion for wildlife and photography gives me the opportunity to not only observe and study the creatures of the bushveld and deserts of South Africa, but also to photograph their behaviour and beauty.
In addition to being a wildlife photographer, I am also a wildlife artist and in the fortunate position of being able to use my own photographs as art references.
My wife, Nicky and I take every opportunity to visit the great game reserves that South Africa has to offer.
It gives us great satisfaction and pleasure to sit quietly at a strategic location, such as waterhole, and experience the sights, sounds and smells of the moment as animals and birds go about their daily business of surviving in the wild.
Wildlife photography requires patience and understanding of animal and bird behaviour. If one is prepared to apply these attributes, one can be assured of capturing something different and out of the ordinary.
Having visited most of the large game reserves in South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe and Botswana, the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park is our favourite destination.
We have just published an update of our book entitled “Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park a Harsh Paradise” . The new book has a large number of new images and has a larger format, which enhances the look and feel of the book with improved quality.
I have made a number of photographic contributions to various wildlife magazines including Africa Geographic, Go Magazine and Africa Birds and Birding.
I currently use two digital Canon SLR bodies and a range of lenses including a 70-200 mm F2.8, 300mm F4 and 500mm F4.
We wish to thank God the great creator for revealing his special creatures to us.
