Sixteen Scenes from 2016

Hello my friends! Firstly- I want to wish you a very happy and blessed 2017! It’s that time of year, eh? If you follow a plethora of photographers you will no doubt see many of them put out some sort of “best of 2016” image collection. I’ve outlined in previous posts why I think it’s […]

Take me to the place where the white boys dance...

To kick off this post, I have to apologise to the band “The Killers”, whose song title made a perfect title for this photo and its resulting blog post. As you may know, we recently returned from an amazing family safari-camping-roadtrip through some of the most iconic places in Namibia. One of the destinations was […]

Returning to Namibia

For someone who feasibly lives merely a day’s hard drive from the glorious expanse that is Namibia, I visit very seldom. I suppose that’s the way it is – life gets in the way, other destinations beckon…but that will change soon. We will be embarking on a 24-day camping adventure, with families in tow, across […]

South Africa is experiencing a heat wave of sweaty proportions – […]

The leopard photo that was 7 years in the making

Leopards and I have a funny relationship. I’ve had to exert quite some patience to obtain photos of them. But this post is not about a Kruger leopard. Ever since visiting the Kalahari for the first time in 14 years back in 2009, I had a strong desire to see and photograph the elusive leopards […]

My 2015 in imperfect hindsight

As is customary for many photographers of all genres during this time of year, I started glancing over my portfolio of work captured during the year in hopes of posting a “best of” collection. I have done so since 2010. Last year I took a very specific approach, only showing photos taken at a focal […]
