Hi All.
I’m one of the few lucky individuals who are able to live in a small village called Skukuza in South Africa.
You might ask now why am I lucky?
Very simple my backyard is nearly 2 million hectares big and full of wildlife; to be specific I have 336 species of trees, 49 fish, 39 amphibians, 114 reptiles, 507 birds and 147 mammals growing and running around
How can that be you asked?
Well, I live in the Kruger National Park, one of South Africa’s Wild Game Reserves and I specialize on wildlife & nature photography. All my photographs of animals are taken in their natural habitat and are wild; as well as my landscapes being untouched or prepared for a shoot.
The challenge shooting in a National Park in South Africa is, that you are not allowed to leave your car and go and walk through the bushveld, as well as getting permits to go on closed roads is not something handed out very easily to anyone.
Apart from wildlife I also run a series on Faces of Africa, in which I showcase the people of Southern Africa, as I see them.
My work is divided into 2 sectors, the first being my open print work which is showcased on, Flickr and the second being my limited print work which is only sold through my website
You are also able to get a bit more background information on shoots on my Facebook page or on twitter.
I sincerely hope you enjoy my photographs and I’m looking forward to your feedback.
