Nature Photography has always been part of my life. Since I can remember -about 45 years ago-I have been clicking away at all things natural. I started taking my hobby seriously about 10 Years ago and never looked back. One day when I’m grown up I want to be a Professional Nature Photographer! When I'm not shooting the beauty of nature I try to manage an egg farm near Pretoria in South Africa with my wife Gerda and our two sons Fanie & Jaco.
