Roger & Pat de la Harpe

We are professional photographers and writers based in South Africa and specialise in wildlife, conservation and travel photography. We have over the last 25 years made frequent excursions into various regions of the African continent in pursuit of great stories and imagery and our work has featured in numerous local and international publications, most notably Getaway, Africa Geographic, BBC Wildlife and German Geo.

We have published 27 coffee table books, many of which are a celebration of nature and the environment. But as part of our commitment to using our photographic and writing skills to greater effect, 2 previous books – In Search of the African Wild Dog and In Search of the African Lion – have a strong conservation emphasis. We hope, in this way, to increase public awareness of these two species and their current predicament and to assist in raising funds to help researchers and game reserve managers find sustainable solutions to the conservation issues surrounding them.

We own and manage Africa Imagery, which is an online database of over 40 000 images of the people, wildlife and landscapes of the African continent. Aside from ourselves, we have 8 other specialist photographers contributing their pictures to our image bank. We also undertake commissioned photography in the tourism sector, run photographic safaris and workshops at carefully selected destinations in southern Africa and offer advice on, and sales of photographic equipment.

Our movie content is growing with the more recent material shot in 4k.
