Aspiring nature, travel and wildlife photographer harking from the small coastal town of good old Mossel Bay in the stunning Garden Route region of South Africa.
During my childhood, I’ve travelled the country with my parents, visiting the forgotten and sometimes virtually undiscovered hidden gems that may be often found off the beaten track. My fondest memories are of multi-day hikes in the Hogback Mountains and of spontaneous campouts throughout the country.
Growing up, I joined the boy-scouts, took part in horse-riding and eventually began to take an interest in photography. It was my love for nature that inspired me to study, and eventually earn my Degree in Nature Conservation at the Nelson Mandela University in George, South Africa. During this time I became a member of the Green Campus Forum; qualified as a field ranger through FGASA; co-authored 2 papers on the Diet of the Cape Leopard and Caracal and studied bats by night at 11 farms across 2 provinces, earning the nickname “Batman”.
I’ve worked at 2 stunning South African conservancies; one in Fransmanshoek, Western Cape and Clarens, where my passion for nature and photography blossomed. My snaps where frequently used in local online news articles and during enviro-education events with schools. Later I worked at a small game reserve for PetroSA, South Africa and my most recent adventures were in the United States where I was able to work at a summer camp, taking youth camping and teaching them survival skills and the joys of organic farming and vermiculture.
I hope to one day inspire a greener tomorrow, by using my artful and visually compelling photography to tell Nature’s beautiful and largely untold story.
