It was quite impulsive, really. After spending four months tour guiding in Africa, I suddenly decided I wanted to take nice photos. But in order to take nice photos, I needed a nice camera. I walked past a camera shop one day and laid down the cash for a Canon 500D. Photography has been a hobby ever since.
During my four years in Africa, I toured groups on safari drives throughout South Africa, Swaziland, Botswana, Namibia, Zambia and Mozambique, and had the fortune of visiting Rwanda and Uganda. It was there that my love for landscape photography grew. There was so much to see, so many incredible glimpses in time to be captured through a lens. The great thing about nature is that you can commune with it. I sit quietly and do my thing, while it goes about doing its thing.
What I love most about photography is hunting for amazing shots. I’ll happily wake up at 4:30 a.m. to catch sunrise, take 300 photos and delete every single one in search of something unique. I know I’ll eventually get one worth sharing. It’s a subtle adrenaline rush of sorts.
Thank you for your interest in my work and I hope my photos speak to you as much as they do to me.
