Very few people can tell you what their passion in life is. Even fewer will be able to tell you that what they do for a living is in fact their passion. I was very fortunate that my love for the bush and conservation took me on journey which would not only allow me to explore the continent which fascinates me so much, but to share my passion for photography and conservation with others.
Conservation was my first passion and it was during my practical year of studies in Game Ranch Management (NDip, BTech) that I discovered another field which I simply had to explore: photography.
After 3 years of guiding in Madikwe Game Reserve I left the bush to further my studies in Ecology & Conservation at Wits University (BSc. Hons, MSc) and after completing my research in conjunction with the Endangered Wildlife Trust I started my own private guiding/travel agency.
Three years later, and after already having dove-tailed with Gerry Van der Walt on numerous photographic safaris & courses, Wild Eye was born.
The thrill of witnessing some of natures rarest and most exciting moments is made even better by being able to capture it all on camera one frame at a time and being able to share the experience with others.
I believe that my unique background and experience in conservation and field guiding provides a wealth of information extending beyond just that of photography, adding to each and every one of the photographic safaris I lead.
I look forward to sharing my passion for wildlife & photography with you!
