South Africa: Rich in National Parks

During my (relatively short, I might add) lifetime I have had the privilege of visiting the majority of South Africa’s national parks and game reserves. What a wealth of natural heritage we possess! When people from abroad look at some of the work in my photographic portfolio, they are amazed at the diversity of wildlife […]

10 below 100 - my reflection on 2014

Good day folks! I bet the title of this blog post has you perplexed. Since January 2010 I have made it a habit of posting a collection of my personal best moments in nature photography on my blog. I know some people scoff at this trend (obviously because many photographers seem to be doing it […]

Foxy Face

Southern Africa has a couple of interesting canids to see when you are on safari. Besides plenty of Black-backed Jackals, the rare Side-striped Jackal and the funky-looking Bat-Eared Fox…there’s also the Cape Fox (Vulpes Chama). This is our only true fox species, and they are beautiful and great fun to photograph. Later this year I […]

A reason for every season in the Kgalagadi

Those who follow my photography will know that I tend to visit the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park a lot.I cannot think of a single naturalist or wildlife photography fanatic in South Africa who doesn’t have a passion for the Kgalagadi. It’s got so much going for it: wide open terrain, big skies, intense predator action, diverse […]

Kgalagadi: September 2009 (Part 9)

It’s time to finish up this trip report as I’ve got many more to share! We awoke to our last full day in the Kgalagadi for this trip. There were some wonderfully streaky cirrus clouds in the sky, and I was hoping to make use of that to capture some interesting landscapes and animals-in-habitat photos. […]

Kgalagadi: September 2009 (Part 8)

Let’s carry on with this trip report, shall we? We spent our last night in Nossob and headed out on a quick game drive the next morning before we had to break up our camp. We had heard lions roaring to the south early in the morning and set off towards the Marie-se-gat waterhole. We […]

New-Look Website!!

Good day, friends! It’s been a long time coming, but I can finally reveal the new homepage that houses my photographic portfolio! I went from the flash-based website that I started out with to a more user-friendly and mobile-browsing-friendly format using HTML5 language. I would love to have your feedback, as I am still building […]

Kgalagadi: September 2009 (Part 6)

Today we would be leaving the Kalahari Tented Camp and move across the dunes to the Nossob riverbed on the border with Botswana. We got up early and packed all the luggage and food so we can hit the road early and have good light for photography. The sunrise looked promising so right before we […]

Kgalagadi: September 2009 (Part 4)

I hope you are enjoying my Kalahari trip report from September 2009 thus far. When I last left you, we had left the Spotted Hyena den close to the Urikaruus Wilderness Camp, and moved further up the Auob riverbed. We soon came across 2 other vehicles parked on the side of the road. What were […]
