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
Hello my fellow Deviants! I hope you all have a wonderful 2014 and had a Happy New Year's celebration!

I am stoked with how many new people started "watching" me in 2013, thanks for your support. Like every year, I compiled a "best of 2013" collection on my blog, with many images that are not posted to DA yet. Would LOVE for you to have a look and let me know which is your favourite! :D


Keep well, and thanks for humbling me by taking the time to view and respond to my photography.

  • Mood: Joy
  • Listening to: The Killers

 Thank you!

I really love your photos. It's nice to see some wild animals, not just zoos. I wish that some day I can travel to Africa and shoot some great pics aswell. Your work truly is inspiring :)
