Big Vic by MorkelErasmus
Big Vic
Being on foot with a large wild African Elephant bull is an amazing experience! You can join me in Mana Pools this year to see this for yourself: bit.ly/Mana2015
This photo is also included in my own "best of 2014" selection: bit.ly/Morkel2014

Hey everyone! Every year I take stock of my photographic journey and this year I took a bit of a different approach. Early in 2014 I resolved to use my wide angle lens more often when I photograph wildlife. No drones, no remote control buggies, no fancy selfie-sticks, just good old cam-to-the-eye photography with a wider perspective. I'd love to know what you think - check it out:
10 out of 100 - my reflection on 2014

Thanks a million for following along on my journey!

Happy New Year!
I hope you are all spending time with your loved ones.
This family of Chacma Baboons was photographed on the banks of the Chobe river earlier this year while hosting a Wild Eye photo safari.

I have been fascinated with eye-catching and breath-taking photos of the natural world for as long as I can remember. I don't know why it took me so long to pick up my first DSLR camera, but when I did, it all just clicked for me (pun intended). Join me as I share my various experiences in and around the Southern African landscape and wilderness with you...

All my photos portray truly wild animals. No Game Park or Zoo images to be found here.

Current Residence: South Africa
Favourite photographer: Nick Brandt, Marsel van Oosten, Vincent Munier, Arthur Morris, Beverly Joubert

Hi :)
I've seen your beautiful photographs around dA and I was wondering if you allow them to be used as stock?
There are some beautiful elephant, hippo, and oryx photos that I'd love to draw from if you would allow me. 

Respectfully,
-Criss
