I never tire of photographing these animals in their natural environment where every new day heralds a new production, new lighting, and a different cast!
I have not always been a professional photographer. I spent 17 years sat behind a desk earning a living and now am a kid in a candy shop doing something I love that takes me to some of the most beautiful places on earth. As many a wise person has commented before me: life is too short not to be doing something you love. Having spent 2 years in East Africa post university there is a certain allure which draws me back (and many others) to this culturally diverse and wildlife rich part of the world. There are still many frontiers that I would love to visit to photograph the local wildlife and that is something I am looking forward to doing over the coming years.
I am based in South-West London for most of the year but the family and I escape to South Africa for at least 3 months of the year from Feb through May to shorten the Northern hemisphere winter and to take advantage of the photographic opportunities which are in abundance.
