“I’ve always had a deep love and interest in nature and photography, so it was only natural that I followed my passion as a nature photographer. I try to capture an unobtrusive, close and intimate view into my subject’s lives; at their level and without disturbance. I spend an enormous amount of time learning every detail about my subjects, their behaviour and their lives. As a visual storyteller, there is nothing more rewarding than recording a unique behaviour or moment and doing so without my presence felt by my subject, or the viewer. As an educator and workshop/safari leader, I love sharing what I’ve learned, and it truly is wonderful to see a participant improve their skills and learn how to reliably create awesome images filled with visual impact.”
